What will I learn?

The focus of our post-master’s DNP program is translation science. Nurses who earn this degree are prepared to lead transformative healthcare by becoming experts in the search, appraisal, synthesis, transfer and application of evidence – and in the evaluation of its impact on outcomes.

This program prepares excellent graduates who hold diverse roles in the healthcare field. You’ll learn to improve patient outcomes by making an impact on patient care, nursing practice and organizational systems.

You’ll also learn to translate and embed best evidence into your practice as you work with experienced faculty and organizational facilitators.

Your plan of study builds on your previous master’s-level coursework. You might need to take advanced pathophysiology, pharmacology and/or physical assessment in addition to DNP core courses. Then, you’ll move to the translation science course sequence, where you’ll build on what you learn by completing a practice inquiry project.

You’ll also be able to translate evidence to support practice; design evidence-based cost-effective nursing interventions; influence policy; initiate change; and evaluate outcomes. Finally, you’ll demonstrate role competence as a DNP.
