The Regis DNP is scheduled so that those in the program can continue full-time employment. Classes are offered evenings, on weekends, on-line, or intensive. Candidates for the program are those nurses who are advanced nursing practice leaders, nurse practitioners, educators or clinical specialists. The DNP curriculum with a concentration in Global Public Health is comprised of 27 core curriculum credits and 3 courses (9 credits) focused on the global application of public health principles. Graduates of the Regis Global Public Health Doctor of Nursing Practice program will be prepared to lead health care programs across sectors and within nations, promote health equity, educate professional colleagues and students, and to systematically assess and evaluate interventions. Career opportunities for graduates include work with NGOs working in health sectors, municipalities or government health departments, academic institutions or private sector companies offering humanitarian relief programs. A maximum of 6 graduate credits may be accepted for transfer. The length of the program varies from three to seven years based on how many courses a student takes per semester.
