The complexity of healthcare delivery, as well as an emphasis on patient outcomes, and a shortage of qualified nurses have created a demand for advanced practice nurses trained at the doctoral level. If you hold a bachelor's degree in nursing and are ready to take on the challenge of becoming a doctorally prepared nurse practitioner, the Regis DNP nurse practitioner program will prepare you for the highest level of practice.
This program is offered in two convenient formats:
- Oncampus Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) (Post-BS Option)
- Online Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) (Post-BS Option)
Goals of this program include preparing you to evaluate the theoretical bases for nursing, synthesize evidence from research and theory to enhance delivery of quality health care, and generate knowledge through research and/or evidence based practice to advance the nursing profession.
Five nurse practitioner population foci, including Adult/Geriatrics, Family, Pediatrics, Psychiatric Mental Health and Woman's Health allow you to choose your area of concentration.
- Health Promotion and Disease Prevention Across Diverse Populations
- Advanced Pathophysiology
- Nursing Leadership
Clinical practicum hours are completed with community preceptors in a variety of settings and a scholarly project completed over four semesters will allow you to explore in-depth critical issues in healthcare and share your work with the healthcare community.
