|Comments:||The Doctor of Nursing Practice at Bellarmine is a post-master’s program. You may select one of two DNP
tracks: one designed for the advanced practice nurse, focused on the healthcare of individuals, and one designed
for those interested in leadership at the system and/or organizational level. Total credit hours for the program
range from 33 to 36 hours, depending on the track you select.
The curriculum consists of core courses, which all students take, and specialty-specific courses. Core content
includes topics such as research and evidence-based practice, quality improvement and patient safety, clinical
informatics, advanced statistics, health care economics and financing, and domestic and global health policy.
In addition, all students complete a practice immersion and residency experience which will culminate with
portfolio development and a capstone project.
