The DNP-APH is offered at Spokane and Vancouver.
The Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) in Advanced Population Health (APH) focuses on the health of populations, while providing a background in assessment, pharmacology, and pathophysiology. Health policy, epidemiology, and health promotion concepts are integrated into the curriculum. While a master’s degree in APH is also available, the DNP prepared APH graduate will gain enhanced skills in interprofessional collaboration, application of evidence-based practice, health information systems, organizational systems, and leadership.
Two pathways are available:
- Hospitals and health care organizations
- Public and community health systems
- Faculty roles in public and private settings
Students must have a Washington State RN license and have worked as a full-time nurse for at least one year to be eligible to apply. To learn about other pre-application requirements, visit the DNP Application & Admission page.
