Virginia Commonwealth University

If you were thinking of applying but needed more time, VCU School of Nursing is pleased to announce there is space available to admit additional qualified students in the fall 2017 DNP program. The new application deadline is June 5, 2017.

Building on the strength of the Magnet-designated VCU Health and the School of Nursing’s Langston Center for Quality, Safety and Innovation, this program is strongly positioned to prepare students to improve the quality of health care delivery and patient outcomes. The Institute of Medicine’s 2011 report “The Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health” noted that nurses have a critical role in transforming our increasingly complex health care system and called for increased education to provide nurses with key knowledge and skills to expand their influence. In order to meet this charge, graduates of the DNP program at VCU will be prepared to improve health care delivery by critically appraising scientific evidence to inform practice, sharing clinical expertise in collaborative and dynamic environments, leading inter-professional teams, providing systems leadership for sustainable best practices in clinical settings and influencing health policy.
