Program Overview

If you hold a bachelor's degree in nursing and are ready to take on the challenge of becoming a prepared nurse practitioner at the doctoral level, the Regis College Doctor of Nursing Practice program will prepare you for the highest level of practice. We will give you the skills needed to lead change in healthcare delivery by improving patient outcomes, influencing policy and shaping future generations of nurses.

Our goal for the Post-BS DNP includes preparing you to evaluate the theoretical bases for nursing, being able to synthesize evidence from research and theory to enhance delivery of quality health care, and the ability to generate knowledge through research and/or evidence-based practice in order to advance the nursing profession.
