Why Edinboro Stands Out.

With a health care system that is constantly evolving, we need caregivers who are able to adapt and lead. If you are already a master's-prepared nurse, our online Doctor of Nursing Practice program will help you create a stronger, more patient-focused health care system.

This 27-credit DNP allows you to further develop your leadership skills, expand your policy expertise and understanding of population health and clinical practice.

Nationally Recognized. ranks Edinboro among America's Best Nursing Programs in the East.

How Edinboro Supports You.

Our DNP program is designed to be flexible, affordable and professionally rewarding.

It is offered online on a part-time basis, so you can continue your professional practice while attending. Many students complete the program in six semesters, which includes summer courses or internships.

The curriculum builds on the foundational competencies of the MSN-prepared advance practice or professional nurse. Courses are sequenced to prepare you for increasingly complex skill sets in data acquisition, analysis and practice application that align with the American Association of the Colleges of Nursing DNP essentials.

As a student, you will be mentored by faculty who are committed to providing developmentally sound academic and clinical experiences.

You will graduate ready to lead in a variety of health care settings.
