WELCOME to an Online DNP Program!
This page provides links to information regarding the Post-MSN APRN Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) degree offered at Georgia Southern University. A Post-BSN to DNP will be offered in the future. The DNP degree prepares nurses to provide the most advanced level of nursing care for individuals and communities. This preparation includes the direct care of individual patients, management of care for individuals and populations, administration of nursing systems, and the development and implementation of health policy.
With additional coursework in education and pedagogy, the DNP cognate can be used to assist graduates to teach in Schools of Nursing.
