My view

“When exploring doctoral programs, it was important to me to find a program that had an extensive clinical option that would advance my current nursing practice. The D.N.P. Program has already greatly enhanced both my clinical knowledge and leadership skills. By completing its requirements, I am preparing for the future of health care. As a practicing D.N.P. clinician, I will have the opportunity and necessary skills to transform the health-care system.”
