Degree Awarded: DNP

Advanced Nursing Practice (Family Nurse Practitioner)

The family nurse practitioner concentration of the DNP program is an advanced nursing practice degree. This is a hybrid program, a blend of in-person and online learning. Students are required to travel to campus for orientation once and for immersions two or three times per semester. Courses focus on assessment, diagnosis, and management of acute and chronic conditions, emphasizing preventive care and promotion of healthy lifestyle choices. Content includes epidemiology, differential diagnosis and sociocultural variations in evidence-based treatments, including health promotion and health education. Any deficiency courses determined by the student's unique gap analysis must have been completed in the past five years to be eligible for credit. The program emphasizes theories, principles and clinical skills for holistic, client-centered, culturally appropriate primary care of infants, children, adolescents, adults and older adults within traditional, nontraditional and culturally diverse families. Practicing faculty with clinical experience teach the specialty coursework and clinical experiences, which enrich learning. In addition to advanced nursing specialty-focused outcomes, the Doctor of Nursing Practice program engages students to meet doctoral-level competencies in systems-level thinking, complexity science, quality and safety, evidence-based practice and the development of a doctoral project within a partner organization to improve outcomes at the patient, provider or health care system level. Students are educated as leaders at the highest level of nursing practice to translate research into practice, lead in multidisciplinary teams, and engage in health care policy and advocacy to improve patient outcomes. Focused clinical experiences are arranged for students residing in Maricopa County, Arizona. Students should expect to travel throughout Maricopa County and, in some cases, surrounding counties to complete their assigned clinical placement. Students residing outside of Maricopa County, Arizona, are responsible for identifying the required number of clinical sites in their area of residence and for identifying preceptors and sites willing to accommodate clinical rotations, and Edson College of Nursing and Health Innovation must approve these sites before starting any clinical experience; the Doctor of Nursing Practice program office does not guarantee a clinical placement site for any student outside Maricopa County. If, during the program, faculty determine the student needs additional supervision for clinical progress in the program, the student must complete clinical experiences in the Phoenix area. The Doctor of Nursing Practice program offers clinical rotations in health profession shortage areas throughout the state, both in urban underserved and rural areas, that provide students multicultural experiences to enhance professional development.
