Drexel University Online, a leader in online degree programs, has added a new online nursing program to its offerings, the Doctor of Nursing Practice, from Drexel’s College of Nursing and Health Professions (DrNP).
Drexel University's doctoral program in nursing practice infuses practice-focused doctoral education with innovation, practical clinical research and scholarship. This program provides practitioners with the advanced skills and knowledge needed to elevate the level of advanced nursing practice necessary for the future of healthcare reform and to address the critical nursing faculty shortage the nation is currently facing. The Drexel DrNP has four designated tracks (practitioner, educator, clinical scientist, and clinical executive) as a practice-doctorate degree that provides graduates with limitless career options.
The Drexel DrNP is a practice-focused, academic doctorate requiring the completion of a pilot-sized, practice dissertation focusing on an area of nursing practice. The practice dissertation, structured to be completed in one year, helps to add to the evidence base for nursing practice. DrNP students will complete a study abroad program for 2 weeks in year 2 of the DrNP program.
“We’re very proud to offer our students the outstanding Drexel curriculum within this convenient online format,” said Dr. Kenneth Hartman, academic director for Drexel University Online. “All of our online programs, including our Doctor of Nursing Practice program, are taught by the same world-renowned faculty as our on-campus courses.”
Applications for Drexel’s Doctor of Nursing Practice program are now being accepted. For more information, visit Drexel’s online degree website, e-mail info(at)drexel(dot)com, or call (877) 215-0009.
