Transformative Leadership - Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP)
The Transformative Leadership DNP track is designed for nurses in systems/indirect care delivery positions, which includes, executive leadership, nursing administration, health informatics, health policy, public health, and quality/safety, among others.
Transformative leadership is an advanced nursing role that drives healthcare change through participatory collaboration, mobilization of collective action and systemic transformation. The transformative leader ignites the quest for robust evidence to produce optimized interventions and measurable individual and population healthcare outcomes. This advanced nursing role inspires synergy though clear and articulate communication to create visionary approaches to healthcare delivery that benefit all participants. Students must achieve a total of 1,000 practicum hours between their master’s degree transcript and DNP coursework (500 hours are built into the role integration practicum courses). A GAP Analysis will be used to determine program requirements.
The DNP consists of a total of 30 credits, 23 from the DNP core and seven (7) from the Transformative Leadership track. One day of onsite residency is required for DNP project dissemination and competency demonstration.
You may also select the BSN to DNP entry option: CNL-DNP is 68 credits.
