Shepherd University

Shepherd University is pleased to announce the opening of the Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) program for the Fall 2015 semester. The program recently received full accreditation from the Higher Learning Commission. Applications are being accepted and reviewed on a rolling basis for the Fall 2015 semester.

The program has two entry points for admission: first, the baccalaureate in nursing to DNP and; second, a post-master’s in nursing to DNP. These different entry points allow the curriculum to be individualized for candidates based on prior education, experience, and choice of specialization. Post-master’s students entering the DNP desiring to change their area of professional practice will be evaluated on an individual basis and may require additional coursework from the professional core or concentration.

Shepherd’s DNP program adheres to the standards identified by the AACN titled the Essentials of Doctoral Education for Advanced Practice Nursing (DNP Essentials). The DNP Essentials identify standard foundational curriculum content and outcomes-based competencies essential for all DNP graduates. The DNP program is conveniently located at Shepherd University Martinsburg Center in Martinsburg, West Virginia with easy access to I-81, Charles Town, WV, Hagerstown, MD, and Winchester, VA. For more information about Shepherd’s DNP program, please visit our website.
