In response to the rising call for nurse leadership in healthcare systems, Ursuline College has announced a 30% reduction in tuition for its Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) and post-graduate certificate programs. Starting with the fall 2020 semester, tuition has been reduced from $1,214 to $849 per credit hour.
"The COVID-19 pandemic will provide many painful lessons about challenges in our health care system nationally," said Breen School of Nursing Dean Patricia Sharpnack, DNP, RN, CNE, NEA-BC, ANEF, FAAN. "One compelling need is for more advanced practice nurses across the broad spectrum of health care settings. The Breen School of Nursing stands ready to help answer this need through our well-established DNP and post-graduate certificate programs."
The DNP program is an online terminal degree program for nurses who already hold the MSN degree and who wish to become influential leaders in nursing practice, administration, and education.
The post-master's certificate programs include:
- Adult-Gerontology Primary Care Nurse Practitioner
- Family Nurse Practitioner
- Adult-Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner
- Adult-Gerontology Clinical Nurse Specialist
- Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner
"Students in our advanced practice nursing programs benefit from engaged faculty members who have expertise in advanced nursing practice, health system leadership and public health/population health," said Janet Baker, DNP, APRN, Associate Dean of Graduate Nursing. "Our focus is on translating evidence into nursing practice by cultivating advanced skill development in evidence-based practice, nursing theory, analytical methods, population health, collaborative leadership, and information systems and technology while impacting health systems."
