DNP graduates are prepared to practice at the most advanced level of nursing. This Doctor of Nursing Practice degree program, accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Education, provides a foundation for the specialty through graduate courses in the application of theory to advance practice. The focus is on development of expertise in providing mental health care to individuals of all ages within traditional, nontraditional and culturally diverse families. Courses are designed to prepare students for certification in advanced nursing as a family psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner.
This program is offered in a hybrid iCourse format that requires students to travel to campus for up to a 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 these 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 their clinical experience in the Phoenix area. Experiences with disadvantaged and multicultural populations are encouraged as are experiences in rural areas, and sites are available for these experiences.
The Plan of Study is the required curriculum to complete the program.
Priority Deadline: December 15
