The DNP (or Doctor of Nursing Practice) qualification is something that can open doors and present opportunities to nurses that they simply wouldn’t have had before. For those who are looking at ways to advance in the nursing profession, studying for a DNP could be the best choice.
The DNP is the highest level of nursing possible, and for those with a true ambition to become the best in their career, the DNP is invaluable. If you can see yourself as a leader, a mentor, someone who can provide excellent nursing care and run a department in a way that inspires others to give their best, then obtaining the DNP has to be on your radar.
Nurses will always want to do their very best for their patients, which is why many nurses are keen to continue learning, and why online learning offers such a variety of useful options. Learning online means that you don’t have to sacrifice your career or your family time to gain additional qualifications, and you can work at your own pace, giving you complete control over your career and the choices you can make.
The DNP typically takes between three and six years to complete, although with an MSN already you can gain the DNP is as little as two years. See this useful infographic for the biggest benefits of obtaining this qualification in nursing, and how it will help you in your future career.
