Nursing Doctoral Programs

College of Nursing and Health Sciences

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.
