Lead as a Doctor of Nursing Practice
Maryville University offers two paths to earn your Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) online. Our online DNP program is designed for nurses who already have their MSN and want to lead at the highest level of the profession, and it can be completed in as few as 20 months. Our online DNP-NP program is for nurses who have completed their MSN and wish to become an NP while also working through their terminal DNP. The DNP-NP can be completed in as few as 36 months, depending on the concentration — ACNP, AGNP, FNP, PMHNP, or PNP.
Both programs are designed to prepare active nurses to become strong leaders who will transform today’s healthcare system and advance the nursing profession. Our choices provide flexible options to earn the terminal degree that helps you advance your skills, further your research, and promote your quality of care.
