Substantial Mod: Doctor of Nursing Practice Program Description
The Doctor of Nursing Practice (D.N.P.) prepares nurses to develop and apply advanced skills in the assessment, diagnosis, and management of health problems encountered in individuals across the adult lifespan (young adults to frail elders).  Graduates of the program will demonstrate mastery of the advanced nursing practice role; integrate the practice of nursing with ethics and biophysical, psychosocial, analytical, organizational and public health sciences to improve patient and population health outcomes; and develop leadership for health care policy and advocacy that shapes health care financing, regulation, access and delivery.
