For Nurses with Bachelor's Degree

Leading the Way to a Just and Humane World

Our full-time Doctor of Nursing Practice program at Seattle University offers you, a current RN, the opportunity to further your nursing career and to gain more autonomy as an advanced practice nurse. You will have the ability to take on leadership roles and make effective changes to the health care systems you are driven to improve.

Our holistic curriculum grounds you with a foundation in critical thinking and evidence-based research to better assess issues within complex systems. And, you gain essential clinical experience in local health care institutions through your DNP internship. You will build the leadership skills necessary to navigate these advanced practice roles as you work closely with faculty and your peers in both the classroom and clinical settings.
