Become a nursing professional equipped with the clinical, organizational, financial, and leadership skills to implement transformational change and improve healthcare outcomes. King University's CCNE-accredited Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) is an academically rigorous program that prepares you to integrate Christian faith, scholarship, and service into your career and daily life as a nursing leader.
Offered in a part-time blended format, this DNP includes online coursework, face-to-face colloquia, and required clinical hours. You'll learn alongside a cohort of supportive peers in classes with small student-to-faculty ratios, which allows for a more individualized experience.
King University's dedicated, expert nursing faculty will lead you through online courses with topics in theoretical foundations, nursing informatics, evidence-based practice, nursing research, data analytics, healthcare policy, and more. Your coursework and clinical experience will conclude with a faculty-mentored project that features scholarly research and data you'll gather from a practice setting convenient to you.
You can complete the 36-semester-hour DNP in two years and pursue several advanced careers, such as a chief nursing officer, hospital chief executive, university faculty, advanced practice nurse, healthcare policy developer, case manager, quality and safety officer, infection control practitioner, and policy specialist.
