Post-Master's DNP | Course Plan

The Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) Program is a practice-focused doctoral program for Nurse Practitioners, Nurse Midwives, and Nurse Executives holding a master’s degree or higher. This program consists of 35-37 credits using a hybrid platform of on-campus and off-campus sessions. On campus sessions are conducted on select dates during the year at a Barry University location in South Florida (schedules will be provided in advance). Off campus, sessions will be conducted via on-line classes using distance learning technology as well as synchronous web-mediated courses.

In addition, completion of individually-designed clinical practicum is required, which can be completed in the state in which the student resides or is employed. During the last semester the student must also successfully complete and present a Capstone Project which demonstrates the synthesis of concepts and skills learned while enrolled in the program as part of their on-campus session requirements.
