Dual-Degree DNP Programs
The Baccalaureate in Nursing to DNP dual degree options are an innovative collaboration between the Nursing, Masters of Arts in Organizational Leadership (MAOL), Master of Business Administration (MBA), and Master of Arts in Holistic Health Studies (MAHS) programs at St. Catherine University. With three options for students to select from, our graduates will learn and grow as leaders in the discipline of nursing while simultaneously having access to the expertise of faculty in other influential healthcare fields.
With curriculum designed for adult learners who are prepared to engage in graduate study in nursing and leadership, these hybrid, evening and occasional weekend program options couple community building and social aspects of face-to-face learning with the flexibility of online interaction and engagement. Assignments reflect contemporary leadership needs, challenges in the healthcare climate and building skill and knowledge sets needed to promote system change. Students will engage in learner-centered classes and extensive practicum work consistent with academic and professional standards of nursing and interprofessional education, advance the profession of nursing, promote the health and wellness of society, and prepare effective, ethical and enduring healthcare leaders. Completion is possible in three and a half to four years.
