New Doctor of Nursing Practice degree offered

Nurses in South Texas will have the opportunity to earn a Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) degree at the Health Science Center beginning in fall 2012. The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board approved the new degree this year. “The purpose of the DNP program is to prepare nurse practitioners, nurse executives and public health nurse leaders to provide health care at the highest level of their specialty,” said Eileen Breslin, Ph.D., dean. “Our graduates will have specialized knowledge to address the needs of our populations for the 21st century.”
