We created this innovative online DNP curriculum to help prepare generations of nurse practitioners to provide primary care of unprecedented quality to the public in this era of tumultuous change,” said Bill Brottmiller, Executive Publisher, Jones & Bartlett Learning.

    As the demands of the healthcare system increase, nurses are being called upon to demonstrate higher levels of scientific knowledge and practice expertise in the field of advanced practice nursing. The Doctor of Nursing Practice degree fulfills the need for an alternative to the research-focused doctorates currently available.
