Curriculum & Course Faculty

Our DNP program has a rich curriculum that includes courses taught by leading faculty.  In addition, students are required to complete a scholarly DNP project, four semesters long, designed to address a practice issue affecting groups of patients, health care organizations or health care systems. For more information, please see the sample matriculation plans and watch our faculty describe the courses they teach.

Embracing Diversity For An Engaged Community

Embracing diversity is a crucial component for engaging with students, faculty, and the world. We think of it as diversity with a global perspective. Creating a learning climate where creativity, robust yet respectful debate, and a genuine respect for others can flourish. Fostering international research collaborations, developing global health initiatives, and coordinating access to health care for under-served populations. Educating next-generation nurses for leadership and service in the global community.

Diversity with a global perspective assures a warm welcome—not mere tolerance—for differences in national origin, race, color, religion, sex, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, or veteran status.

We provide a safe haven where diversity can spawn intellectual engagement and collaborative partnerships.
