DNP graduates are prepared to practice at the most advanced level of nursing. This program, accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education, provides a foundation for this specialty through graduate courses in the application of theory to advance practice. A major focus of the program is the acquisition of advanced knowledge and skills for primary care, case management, screening and health promotion of adults through the lifespan in a variety of settings, including private practice, ambulatory clinics, long-term care facilities and the patient's home.
This program is offered in a hybrid in-person and iCourse format, requiring students to travel to campus for up to one week for orientation at the beginning of the program and then two or three times per semester.
Focused clinical experiences are arranged with appropriate preceptors and administrators. Every attempt will be made to arrange this in the student's geographical area. In the event that clinical sites are unavailable in that area or if the faculty determine the student needs additional faculty supervision of skills, the student will be required to complete the clinical experience in the Phoenix area. Rural health and experiences with disadvantaged and multicultural populations are encouraged, and sites are available for these experiences.
The Plan of Study is the required curriculum to complete the program.
Priority Deadline: December 15
Applications will be reviewed on a space-available basis after this deadline. Apply as soon as possible for consideration.
