A host of unique offerings in the University of Missouri–St. Louis’ Doctor of Nursing Practice program give the degree an edge over its competition.
Despite being a primarily online program, the DNP boasts several three-day intensives to teach skills and enhance relationship building. Then there’s the focus on teaching about social determinants of health, which prepare nurse practitioners and leaders to work with disadvantaged populations. Plus, the collaboration with the College of Optometry gives students experience in ophthalmic assessment and treatment.
For all these reasons and more, the DNP program has been consistently recognized as a top option. Last week, Learn.org became the latest rankings organization to acknowledge the College of Nursing program’s excellence by including it on the list “Best Online DNP Programs.”
