Online DNP Program

Georgia Southern University’s Post-MSN-DNP degree prepares advanced practice nurses to provide the highest level of nursing care to individuals and communities. Students must have their Advanced Practice Registered Nurse (APRN) license and certification for this program. Examples of the four (4) APRN roles identified by the Consensus Model are: Certified Nurse Midwife (CNM), Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA), Nurse Practitioner (NP), and Clinical Nurse Specialist (CNS).

Our six-semester online program provides APRNs with the flexible schedules they need to earn a terminal degree.

Both synchronous (live, real-time) and asynchronous (on your own, not live) formats are used.  Most of the course work is asynchronous but live sessions are scheduled in selected online courses. Students should consult with individual course syllabi for specific live session requirements.
The curriculum is aimed at translating evidence into practice in the following areas to improve healthcare outcomes:
    • Health policy
    • Management of care for individuals and populations
    • Nursing/healthcare systems
