School of Nursing to Have First Doctoral Program at University

Submitted by Meg McCaffrey on February 9, 2010

pr_jnovotny06Fairfield University is launching a new Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) program, making it the University’s very first doctoral program.

The DNP program at the School of Nursing will begin classes in September, 2010. It allows nurses to select or build on a specialized clinical focus as a family or psychiatric nurse practitioner. Nurses with either a M.S.N. or B.S.N degree can go directly through to Fairfield’s DNP program, unlike many universities where a master’s degree is required to enter a DNP program.

The School is now accepting applications to the DNP program in family and psychiatric nurse practitioner specialty tracks. More information about the DNP program can be found at or call Graduate Admissions at (203) 254-4184.
