The online post-master’s DNP program has been designed for certified advanced practice nurses to be experts in specialized advanced nursing practice (AACN, 2006). The program is comprised of 33 credits over five semesters. Additional content beyond the MSN includes: systems thinking; patient safety and quality; ethics in advanced nursing practice; health policy aimed at patient advocacy; and the completion of a scholarly project that uses evidence-based practice.
Maryville also offers an online post-BSN DNP program. This program is a combination of both MSN and DNP course work and has four concentrations: a) Adult-Gerontology Primary Care Nurse Practitioner, b) Family Nurse Practitioner, c) Adult-Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner, and d) Pediatric (Primary Care) Nurse Practitioner. The program consists of 68-74 credits. For specific course listings, contact an enrollment advisor.
