Doctor of Nursing Practice Degree Program
The Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) Program is a Post-Master’s program for advanced practice nurses certified in the family nurse practitioner role. The post master’s entrance for the proposed PVAMU DNP program will build on the professional nurse’s depth and scope of knowledge and information management to become increasingly adept in the application of evidence-based science to practice. The DNP program positions the graduate in exhibiting transformational leadership to effect and generate health policy development, evidence-base practice careers, and evaluation in collaboration with inter-professional teams and partnerships.
The program of study is 39 credit hours that could be completed in 19 months (full-time enrollment option) and 28 months (part-time enrollment option). Students complete 33 credits of required courses and 6 credits of free electives. The required courses represent didactic, a practice residency, and a capstone project. The program is presented in a hybrid online format with required face-to-face meetings and is offered at approved off-campus sites – the College of Nursing, 6436 Fannin Street, Houston, Texas 77030 and the PVAMU Northwest Houston Campus, 9449 Grant Road, Houston, Texas 77070.
