Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) Program

NorCal DNP Program

Our joint doctoral program is a post-master's degree program with California State University, Fresno and San Jose State University referred to as the CSU Northern California Consortium (NorCal) Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP). Our program is approved by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) and we hosted an accreditation review visit from the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) in Spring 2014. We anticipate the accreditation results by the Fall 2014.

Mission

Our mission is to prepare promising nursing leaders, advanced practice clinicians, and nursing faculty with high leadership potential to examine critically current healthcare practices and policies from a broad theoretical and practical perspective; and to formulate clinical, administrative, and instructionally effective leadership approaches that can improve the quality of healthcare throughout the state.

Vision

Our vision is to be an exceptional advanced nursing degree program that will prepare nurses at a doctoral level to lead health care change, serve as nursing faculty, and advance health throughout California's communities. Our graduates will serve as stewards of the nursing discipline and work collaboratively with other disciplines to improve the health care systems of our community.
