Washburn’s Doctorate of Nursing Practice degree program offers a strong focus on entrepreneurship. It is the first DNP program in the United States to offer DNP students concurrent enrollment in the Master of Business Administration as part of the DNP curriculum. The school is committed to blending advanced practice knowledge with strong fundamental business practices. At a time of great change within the health care system, graduates of the Washburn DNP program will have the skills necessary to thrive in that environment.
The DNP program is open to family and adult nurse practitioners who have a Master’s degree in nursing.
In addition, the program offers a post-Master’s DNP option for nurses with a Master’s degree who are NOT nurse practitioners.
The BSN-to-DNP program will begin in the Fall 2015 semester.
