Online nursing programs offered by Edinboro University in consortium with Clarion University ranked 4th in OnlineU.org’s list of the 25 most affordable schools offering online nursing degrees.
The Clarion and Edinboro Universities’ Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) program is a 27-credit program. Courses can be taken part-time over 5 semesters in an online format. Students will be admitted in cohorts and begin courses in May each year. The program is designed to be flexible, affordable and professionally rewarding. The online, part-time structure accommodates employment as an advanced practice nurse, professional nurse (nurse leader), or nurse educator while pursuing the DNP, thus easing the financial burden.

This may be direct care such as nurse practitioners, nurse anesthetist, clinical specialist, nurse midwife or in-direct care such as nurse administrators, nursing informatics, or nurse educators.
