A TWO-YEAR DOCTORAL PROGRAM THAT WILL TAKE YOUR NURSING PRACTICE TO THE NEXT LEVEL

As the number of higher-level nursing positions that prefer candidates with a DNP continues to rise, Pace University’s Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) provides the innovative learning opportunities you need to become a clinical leader in advanced nursing and primary health care.

With a newly-revised curriculum where you can complete the program in two years—five semesters (including summer) featuring a blended-learning format which combines online and in-person coursework—our post-master’s program for family or adult acute care nurse practitioners has been specially designed to allow you to accelerate your career trajectory while evolving your current practice.

Our DNP program will prepare you to redefine your role as a clinical practitioner as you transition from developing healthcare solutions at the individual level to the population level. As you advance, you will forge lasting relationships with fellow students, all while building new knowledge under the supportive guidance of mentors and faculty alike.
