Barry University's Doctoral Nursing Programs: DNP and PhD
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.
Post-Baccalaureate Doctorate in Nursing Practice: DNP
If you are an RN with a bachelor’s degree in another field or currently hold a Bachelor of Science in Nursing, and would like to advance your nursing career as a nurse practitioner, the Post-Baccalaureate Doctorate in Nursing Practice program will allow you to earn your Doctorate in Nursing Practice within four years.
Doctorate in Nursing Practice: DNP (Post-Master's)
Our Doctorate of Nursing Practice (DNP) program is for nurses who have already obtained their Master of Science in Nursing. This program allows you to complete the DNP program within six semesters (two years) plus completion of the Scholarly Project.
Doctor of Philosophy in Nursing: PhD
Our Doctor of Philosophy in Nursing (PhD) program is for nursing professionals who are interested in becoming researchers or educators in the field of nursing. Students can pursue their PhD within one of our cohorts throughout Florida, which include Miami Shores, Palm Beach and Orlando.
