Today, nursing is an ever-evolving field in health care. Doctorate-level prepared nurses inspire me on a regular basis with their involvement in patient advocacy, their influence on health policy and their effectiveness as leaders.

The DNP program has provided me the latest research tools, methodologies and insights into evidence-based practice. It has broadened and strengthened my leadership skills, equipping me to tackle a more complex nursing environment.

DUSON’s core values of respect, integrity, diversity and inclusiveness and more resonate with me. As soon as I started school, I really felt this is a place I can call home. DUSON has a unique culture of diversity and inclusivity unlike any other, and students have tremendous support from faculty and staff and the lifelong camaraderie of peers in their program.
