Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP)
The Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) at the Nicole Wertheim College of Nursing and Health Sciences at FIU focuses on improving healthcare by facilitating a culture of patient safety, evidence-based practice, culturally competent care for diverse patients/populations and by providing the additional skills necessary to develop advanced practice nursing leaders for the future. Graduates of this program will be able to facilitate the application and integration of research into clinical practice using innovative approaches across multiple settings to improve healthcare outcomes of culturally and linguistically diverse patients, and healthcare systems in South Florida as we move forward in a dynamic, diverse environment.
