BSN-DNP Program in Leadership
The BSN-DNP track is designed for BSN-prepared graduates seeking doctoral preparation for advanced practice as an organizational leader in a variety of health care settings. Students focus on financial and economic aspects of health care, human and resource management, and organizational leadership.
Given the increasingly complex healthcare environment, this track provides students with the specialized knowledge and skills needed by today’s nursing leaders to identify aggregate health or system needs, work with diverse stakeholders for inter- or intra-organizational achievement of health-related goals, and design patient-centered care delivery systems. Selected clinical, administrative, and evidence-based practice experiences provide the student with the opportunity to function as a nurse administrator within a healthcare organization and/or system.
This program includes a total of 68 credit hours. The program is fully online and is ideal for students with professional or personal obligations during the typical work week. New students will participate in a mandatory technology orientation that may be completed in-person or by recorded video. Most courses will also offer once per-semester optional class meetings which will be available by recorded video as well.
