And, with additional training in nursing education, many practitioners with a DNP have also moved into an educational setting as nursing faculty. Ohio graduates are well-prepared to meet the health care needs of individuals, families, and communities of the future.
Ohio University's BSN-DNP and MSN-DNP programs offer two specialization paths: direct patient care as an advanced practice nurse (Family Nurse Practitioner, Psych-Mental Health Nurse Practitioner, Adult-Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner), and indirect patient care as a nurse executive or nurse educator. Upon graduation, you will have earned the DNP and a graduate certificate in your specialty focus, if applicable, for eligibility to complete a national certification examination.
