Sacred Heart University’s doctor of nursing practice (DNP) program ranks among the top 100 nationally, according to U.S.News & World Report, a multi-platform publisher of news and information. The College of Nursing’s bachelor of nursing to doctor of nursing practice program educates nurses in advanced practice for the role of family nurse practitioner. The program is suited for nurses with direct experience in patient care and a robust clinical background, though recent graduates are considered, as well.
