Clarke's DNP program is limited to 20 students per cohort. Students will have a one-on-one experience with Clarke University faculty and staff throughout their doctoral studies. Courses employ a hybrid delivery format providing students with the opportunity to engage with faculty as they blend face-to-face and convenient online instruction.
If you are a licensed, registered nurse from an accredited nursing program, Clarke's three-year BSN-DNP program will help you prepare for a career as a nurse practitioner.
