DNP Program

Creating a healing environment is the prime directive of nursing. The UST Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) program enables professional nurses to expand their abilities through the practice of transformational leadership. By translating research into practice, graduates are equipped to create organization-wide changes that spark transformations in patient care and well-being. They will become experts in creating healing environments.

This program admits nurses who have earned either a bachelor’s or master’s degree in nursing. Those with a bachelor’s degree complete the program in three years of full-time study. Master’s graduates complete the program in less time based on an individual review of prior graduate work that will count toward the DNP degree. Part-time options are also available.
