It’s in a nurse’s nature to be inquisitive. Asking questions is all part of the job when assessing health conditions and getting down to all the whats, wheres and whens behind the things that bring patients into the clinic. But it goes deeper than that too. Nurses tend to be voracious readers, hungry for knowledge and eager to learn anything that’s going to make them better at the job.
And for any nurse serious about taking that propensity to learn and improve themselves all the way to the top, a DNP is definitely on the radar. But just gearing up to earn a DNP comes with a lot of questions, not to mention all the things that come up along the way once you’re in that program and grinding through the course material.
It’s a big expense and a big commitment, and although it comes with a big pay-off in the end, there’s still a lot to consider even before submitting that application and securing those student loans.
Here you’ll find the answers to all the big and little questions would-be DNP students and current nursing doctoral students have. We’ll be updating our FAQs frequently as new questions come in.
