Doctor of Nursing Practice
Complete your nursing education with Morningside's online DNP program
The health care industry is facing increasing demand and a need for innovation. Nursing is vital part of the solution, with the American Association of Colleges of Nursing calling for advanced practice nurses to hold doctoral degrees like the DNP.
Building upon the bachelor's and master's degree programs that are already part of the Nylen School of Nursing, Morningside's first doctoral program will allow you to reach the pinnacle of your nursing education with two distinct tracks, including options for BSN to DNP or MSN to DNP.
How the DNP Program Works
- Online: Since most of our students are employed full-time and have busy lives, we offer courses online so you can complete coursework as your schedule allows.
- Rolling Enrollment: You can enroll in fall, spring, or summer semester.
- Flexible Plan of Study: Given the busy lives our students lead, we also know that sometimes life happens. Though continuous enrollment will allow you to complete your DNP faster, you do have the option to stop and restart as needed.
- Individualized Instruction: Learn from seasoned faculty who can adapt your DNP experience to your goals and interests.
