About DNP Nursing Programs


The Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) degree is a highly specialized program that is only suitable for those with specific advanced interests in the nursing profession. Having a DNP degree will allow one to become a college professor of nursing or a nursing administrator within a hospital or medical facility. Before entering a DNP program one should have a focused career path in mind because a DNp degree is not as versatile as some other higher level degrees. DNP programs are designed to prepare students with an excellent knowledge of the science and practice of nursing. Although these programs are somewhat rare and are not offered in all states there are online DNP programs available for those who wish to pursue this path.
