Doctor of Nursing Practice

The Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) degree prepares graduates to provide the most advanced level of nursing care for individuals, families, groups, and communities. Courses are delivered on a part-time basis, using a low-residency model, which includes online coursework with two on-campus visits. 

Program Tracks

The program consists of two tracks, a post-baccalaureate and a post-masters. The DNP curriculum is 78 credit hours for the post-baccalaureate track and 33 credit hours for the post master's track.

I decided to come to NMU because, in 7th grade, a family friend who was working as a nurse told me, "If you really want to be a good nurse, you should go to Northern Michigan University". She graduated from NMU and ever since then, I had it on my list.
