Graduate Programs – Doctor of Nursing Practice

The future of healthcare depends on strong leadership from excellent clinicians. The graduate nursing programs at TU provide this education through rigorous didactic and clinical experiences that prepare nurses to provide care and lead change into the future. The School of Nursing offers cutting edge Advanced Practice Nursing graduate programs that culminate with the Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) degree.

Our programs are taught by practicing experts in their fields. Students learn through active learning experiences using state of the art human patient simulation and hands on learning through facilitated on site clinical experiences. Students are matched with faculty and preceptors that will promote learning. Faculty believe that students should be free to concentrate on learning rather than the administrative work of locating preceptors.

Did you know that The University of Tulsa School of Nursing matches DNP students with preceptors for all clinical rotations? Many other programs leave that to student. See how earning your nursing degree at TU can set you apart. 



The DNP program is a candidate for accreditation by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN), 3343 Peachtree Road NE, Suite 850, Atlanta, GA 30326.

The DNP program is approved by the Oklahoma Board of Nursing. The School of Nursing is a member of the National League for Nursing and the American Association of Colleges of Nursing.  Graduates of the program will be eligible to apply to sit for national board certification in their respective field of study after accreditation is granted by the ACEN.
