Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP)

Saint Mary's College offers a primarily online Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) program, open to both men and women. Build on your baccalaureate education with a degree that will allow you to direct the future of your profession. Blending Saint Mary's student-centered approach with a unique curriculum that includes courses on data analytics and social entrepreneurship, you'll emerge ready to devise solutions to unmet healthcare needs - and lead meaningful change in a complex system.

With just 2-3 classes per term, the curriculum is designed to allow you to work and complete your course assignments just about anywhere, with the support of the Saint Mary's community. At the conclusion of the program you'll be eligible to sit for the Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) exam. Thanks to the program's emphasis on social entrepreneurship, you'll be able to create any job you want - whether that's running your own clinic, operating within a current healthcare setting, or creating a position that doesn't yet exist.
