Post-MSN to DNP

There are also two specializations offered with the DNP program paths: direct patient care as an advanced practice nurse (Family Nurse Practitioner, Psych-Mental Health Nurse Practitioner, Adult-Gero Acute Care Nurse Practitioner), and indirect patient care as a nurse leader or nurse educator. You are able to complete a program of study for a specialization if you are interested. Many of the students can complete the specializations in just 1-2 additional semesters from the original DNP plan of study.
