Doctor of Nursing Practice Programs
Become a leader, clinical scholar and expert who influences health-care policy
The Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) degree is the terminal degree in nursing for practice. Doctor of Nursing Practice graduates are prepared at the highest level of practice and are prepared to serve in advanced clinical and leadership positions.
The DNP program at Rhode Island College is aligned with the Doctor of Nursing Practice essentials (AACN, 2006). By attaining doctoral level competencies in these areas, students are prepared to participate as full scholars in the effective translation of evidence into practice and achievement of optimal outcomes at the patient, population and system levels.
