The program provides pathways for graduate students with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) to earn their DNP degree in as few as 40 months. The curriculum enhances students’ knowledge of patient care, policies and procedures, and research methods, positioning them to take on a high-level role in health care upon graduation.
“Regis recognizes the important role of the university to provide nurses with opportunities that advance their knowledge and career. Through our online DNP program, Regis is committed to addressing the ongoing healthcare workforce shortage across the country by educating future nurses in a convenient, flexible format,” said Provost and Vice President of Academic Affairs Mary Erina Driscoll, PhD. “The university, nursing faculty, and students are thrilled to be recognized for the quality of Regis' doctor of nursing practice program.”
With three separate start times per year and six different pathways for students to pursue, Regis’ online DNP program provides a flexible format for students to complete their degree. The six nurse practitioner tracks offered are Pediatric Nurse Practitioner (PNP), Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP), Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP), Women's Health Nurse Practitioner (WHNP), Adult Gerontology – Primary Care Nurse Practitioner (AGPCNP), and Adult Gerontology – Acute Care Nurse Practitioner (AGACNP).
According to NurseJournal.org, the organization has been helping prospective healthcare professionals and career changers find their path in nursing for nearly a decade. Their website offers a variety of up-to-date information on higher education in the healthcare field as well as news and industry trends that could affect nurses and other healthcare workers. By prioritizing factors like affordability and quality, NurseJournal centers the student experience around the value of a nursing degree.
