Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences Launches Doctor of Nursing Practice Program

  • Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences (MCPHS) has launched a Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) program that prepares nurses to deliver expert care, provide innovative practice, and translate evidence-based care to clinical practice.

    Offered in a convenient online format, this two-year program is designed for advanced practice registered nurses, including those certified as nurse practitioners, nurse midwives, nurse anesthetists, or clinical nurse specialists, who are looking to reach the highest level of the nursing profession.

    The program is the first doctoral-level degree program offered by the School of Nursing, which also offers a Bachelor of Science in Nursing, certificates of advanced graduate studies, and Master of Science in Nursing.

    Students in the DNP program can customize their degree by completing elective courses in areas they are passionate about. And ss part of the DNP program, students work closely with faculty to develop and present a scholarly project informed by their experiences in class and through immersion experiences.

    Applications to the Doctor of Nursing Practice program are now being accepted.
