Due to the increased complexity of health care, strong doctoral-prepared nurses with a focus on the practice setting are needed. A primary goal of the DNP graduate will be to translate evidence into practice in ways that improve the quality and safety of patient care and enhance positive patient outcomes.

The Rutgers School of Nursing has program offerings for bachelor’s-prepared RNs in the  Post Baccalaureate DNP program as well as offerings for master’s-prepared RNs seeking a doctoral degree in  Post Master’s DNP (online and executive model) program.

Whether practicing as a clinician, in a nursing leadership role, or in the community, the Rutgers DNP graduate will be prepared to affect practice, design and implement programs that improve health and health care delivery, apply data management and informatics skills to evaluate outcomes, and influence policy.

The School of Nursing offers students the opportunity to learn from experienced and nationally recognized faculty who all are actively engaged in teaching and clinical practice in every specialty area we offer. Students receive mentoring and individualized attention from faculty throughout the program based on the student’s needs.

Campus Locations

DNP programs consist of a mix of hybrid, full-time, and part-time programs.

All of the in-person classes are held at the Newark campus for the Leadership option.

The Executive Weekend Model holds classes in New Brunswick or Newark.
