The Doctor of Nursing Practice program is a practice-focused doctoral program emphasizing innovative, evidence-based professional practice and reflecting the application and implementation of credible research findings. The Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner specialization is intended for registered nurses with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing or a Master of Science in Nursing.

The College of Nursing offers full-time and part-time options for DNP students. Part-time students must be enrolled in at least 6 units per semester. Part-time study is only available during the pre-clinical portion of the program and adds a year to the degree completion timeline.

It is your responsibility to identify professionals or preceptors in your local community who could be preceptors for your clinical management courses during the initial semester of the DNP program. If suitable preceptors cannot be found in your local community, you may be required to travel to another city or state to complete your clinical management course requirements. The College of Nursing has graduate coordinators who will assist you with formalizing clinical site agreements and required paperwork.
