A DNP DEGREE GRADUATE IS PREPARED TO IMPROVE HEALTH
AND CARE OUTCOMES THROUGH ORGANIZATIONAL/SYSTEMS LEADERSHIP,
QUALITY IMPROVEMENT PROCESSES, AND TRANSLATION OF
EVIDENCE INTO PRACTICE, AMONG OTHER WAYS.

Doctor of Nursing Practice

A DNP degree is a practice-focused doctoral program.  This is different from a research-focused doctorate which prepares Nurse Educators and Researchers. For a DNP degree, there is a practice application-oriented final DNP project required rather than a dissertation, measured according to its contribution to improved outcomes. SVSU's DNP program is designed for busy nurses who work full-time.  Each fall and winter semesters only one or two Saturday seminars are required and all other coursework is online.  The program can be completed in three years, or longer if coursework is spread out for a lighter load each semester.
