The online Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) degree at Monmouth University is a post-master's academic degree that focuses on organizational/systems leadership and scholarship in order to address the complexity of healthcare. DNP graduates are nurse leaders who excel in today's highly complex and rapidly evolving healthcare environments.
The DNP is the preferred pathway for those seeking preparation at the highest level of nursing practice. Advanced nursing practice is any form of nursing intervention that influences healthcare outcomes for individuals or populations. The nursing experience of DNP students is varied and may include nursing education, administration, health policy, nurse practitioner, school nurse, informatics, etc., who provide direct or indirect management of care for individual patients or management of care populations.
DNP scholarship focuses on the translation of new science, its application and evaluation. The DNP degree prepares nurses to generate new knowledge through innovation of practice change, the translation of evidence, and the implementation of quality improvement processes.
The DNP program is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (One Dupont Circle NW Suite 530 Washington, DC 20036).
