The experience of prospective DNP students is varied and may include nursing education, administration, health policy, nurse practitioner, school nurse or informatics, who provide direct or indirect management of care for individual patients or management of care for populations.
Monmouth’s rigorous DNP scholarship focuses on the translation of new science, its application and evaluation. The DNP degree prepares nurses to generate new knowledge through innovation of practice change, the translation of evidence, and the implementation of quality improvement processes.
