Doctor of Nursing Practice in Clinical Leadership
Duquesne University

Program Details

As a RN you already understand the importance of healthcare and work everyday to ensure that your patients have the best possible outcomes.  The Doctor of Nursing Practice in Clinical Leadership, an online nursing administration degree from Duquesne University, helps you to take your career to the next level.  

The Clinical Leadership DNP program teaches students to manage the business side of healthcare.  Courses prepare you to influence patient outcomes and improve the quality of care in clinical settings using evidence-based practice.  Instead of working one-on-one with patients, graduates of this program take their influence to the administrative level, managing nursing staff and leading your team to ensure best practices are used when it comes to patient care.

In as little as two years graduates are competent, highly-qualified leaders who are ready to transform the future of health care and improve health outcomes for diverse populations.  While the online coursework allows you to earn your degree on our own schedule and in the convenience of your own home, the one-on-one faculty mentorship ensures that you do not feel alone.
