Transition to the executive nurse leadership DNP
If you are a practicing nurse with an earned Master of Business Administration (MBA) or Master of Health Administration (MHA), this track allows you to move more quickly into high-demand executive nurse leader roles.
BSN-prepared nurses with an earned MBA or MHA can transition to the Executive Nurse Leadership Doctor of Nursing Practice program by completing 12 “transition credits” (four courses). This MSN-level coursework covers essential content and allows you to transition seamlessly into the DNP program.
The Executive Nurse Leadership DNP is designed to prepare nurses to lead teams, work at the highest level of advanced practice, manage a service line or clinical department, impact health policy, or take on a leadership role in a wide range of healthcare and education organizations.
There is a seven-semester full-time plan of study and 10-semester part-time plan of study available. MBA or MHA to DNP Transition track cohorts start each spring.
