Online Post-Master’s Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP)
Gonzaga offers a Post-Master’s Doctor of Nursing Practice as well as a Post-Baccalaureate pathway to obtaining a Doctor of Nursing Practice degree (visit the Post-Bacc pages for more info about this pathway).
At Gonzaga, our goal is to help you develop personally and professionally. With commitment and hard work, you will graduate with a quality education from a well-respected institution and emerge practice-ready, rigorously trained, and as a leader poised to influence positive change.
Founded in our Jesuit ethos, our mission is to deliver clinical practice leaders who practice and live as people for others. Be ready to serve and change the healthcare industry for the better.
“While 13 percent of nurses hold a graduate degree, fewer than one percent have a doctoral degree. Nurses with doctorates are needed to teach future generations of nurses and to conduct research that becomes the basis for improvements in nursing science and practice. The committee recommends doubling the number of nurses with a doctorate by 2020.”
– “The Future of Nursing, Focus on Education” by Institute of Medicine of the National Academies and the Robert Wood Johnson Roundation, October 2010
