General Information Nursing Doctoral Programs

We offer three options for nurses seeking their doctoral degree. If you are looking to advance your nursing career to the highest level as a Nurse Practitioner, we offer a Post-Baccalaureate Doctorate in Nursing Practice (DNP) program, as well as a Doctorate in Nursing Practice (DNP) program for registered nurses who already have their master’s degree.

For nurses who are looking to make strides within research and academia through their expertise as a nursing professional, we offer an interdisciplinary Doctor of Philosophy in Nursing (PhD) program where students take classes within Barry University’s School of Education and the College of Nursing and Health Sciences.

Program Options:

  • Nursing Practice, Post-Baccalaureate DNP

    The program is designed for registered nurses with bachelor’s degrees and offers two clinical specialization tracks: Family Nurse Practitioner and Adult-Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner.

  • Nursing Practice (DNP) - Post Baccalaureate DNP, specialization in Anesthesiology

    This program is designed for registered nurses seeking to enter the nurse anesthesia profession.

  • Nursing Practice, Post-Master’s DNP

    This practice-focused post-master’s doctoral program is designed to prepare experts in specialized advanced nursing practice.

  • Nursing Practice (DNP) - Post Master's DNP, specialization in Anesthesiology

    The Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) with a specialization on Anesthesiology prepares CRNAs to acquire the clinical, organizational, financial and leadership knowledge to design and implement programs of care delivery which significantly impact health care outcomes.

  • Nursing, PhD

    The PhD provides a framework for inquiry that is responsive to global trends and contemporary challenges in nursing and health care. It is grounded in a perspective that seeks justice, eschews prejudice, and embraces community service.
