Prepare to Lead the Future of Healthcare.

With a healthcare system that is constantly changing and evolving, we need caregivers who are able to adapt with and lead it.

Our Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP), developed with Clarion University, trains and develops tomorrow’s healthcare leaders.

Our DNP trains nurse practitioners to provide comprehensive and autonomous care to patients while creating a stronger, more patient-focused healthcare system. Graduates develop leadership skills, policy and population health experience, and clinical practice. These skills help fill the gaps in primary care nationwide.
