DNP Applications are still being accepted for Fall 2013 Admission!
WSU College of Nursing Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) program prepares nurses to be leaders in clinical practice and allows graduates to practice at the most advanced level of nursing. The DNP program gives students the opportunity to work in various health care settings under the guidance of experienced faculty mentors and community experts. An integral part of the program is the completion of the Practice Transformation Project, which provides students with the knowledge and skills to utilize research and leadership in practice and to participate in research relevant to their practice. DNP graduates are prepared to translate research and evidence into practice, lead interdisciplinary care teams, measure health-related outcomes, and improve the health of individual patients, groups, populations, and communities.

- Courses are taught on campus where students can work side by side with expert faculty, fellow nurses, and colleagues in medicine, pharmacy, dental, social work, public health, and other health disciplines.
- Students interact with participating campus sites statewide through two-way, fully interactive videoconferencing, learning amongst a community of scholars who are also engaged in practice and leadership.
- Faculty are accessible in-person, online, or over the phone. All are dedicated to student success.
- The program is ideal for working professionals; most courses will be taught on the same day and require one full day on-campus every two to three weeks. Some courses will require more, although that is not usual.
