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 your career to the next level, the Regis Doctor of Nursing Practice-Post BS Option will prepare you for the highest level of nurse practitioner practice.
The Regis BS-DNP consists of an integrated curriculum streamlining the accredited master's nurse practitioner program and doctor of nursing practice program and can be completed on a full- or part-time basis. You will be awarded a master's degree after the third year, enabling you to sit for national NP certification.
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 medical community. Graduates of the Regis Doctor of Nursing Practice Program are currently working at Good Samaritan Medical Center, Greater Lawrence Psychiatric Association, Fitchburg State University and others.
