Course Description

The faculty in the College of Nursing and Health Innovation offer a graduate program leading to the DNP in advanced nursing practice with a concentration in adult nurse practitioner, which is designed for nurses seeking to become advanced-practice nurses as adult nurse practitioners. Providing a foundation for this specialty are graduate courses in application of theory to advanced practice; application of evidence to advanced practice; advanced pathophysiology; advanced health assessment; and advanced practice nursing role. The program is designed to be accessible to students living or working at a distance, with course work delivered in a hybrid online format in which students attend on-campus sessions two to three times each semester. Graduates in the adult nurse practitioner concentration are prepared to provide primary care to adults who are in various states of health in a variety of settings. Health promotion and illness prevention are among the essential threads integrated throughout the program of study. Focused clinical experiences are arranged with appropriate preceptors and administrators. Every attempt will be made to arrange this in the student's geographical area. In the event that clinical sites are unavailable in that area or if the faculty determine the student needs additional faculty supervision of skills, the student will be required to complete the clinical experience in the Phoenix area. Rural health and experiences with disadvantaged and multicultural populations are encouraged, and sites are available for these experiences.
