Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) Program

The DNP is a practice-oriented doctorate, such as the Doctor of Pharmacy, Doctor of Medicine (MD), Doctor of Optometry, or Doctor of Physical Therapy, in contrast to the research-oriented PhD.  The purposes of the DNP are to develop advanced competencies for increasingly complex practice, faculty, and leadership roles in nursing and to provide an advanced educational credential for those in advanced practice.

The Doctor of Nursing Practice Program will be offered through a Consortium of the Schools of Nursing at California State University, Fullerton, Long Beach and Los Angeles. 

You may find additional information about this program on the website of CSU Fullerton.
