Brenau University to Offer Doctor of Nursing Practice

Individuals who wish to become leaders in the healthcare industry may want to consider pursuing a nursing degree at the doctoral level. Brenau University in Georgia will soon offer a doctor of nursing practice program, according to AccessNorthGA.com.

The institution received approval for the advanced nursing program from the Board of Trustees of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges. The university will accept applications in January and candidates in August. School officials plan to initially admit 12 to 15 individuals in the fall term, then increase enrollment to 25 students a year. Students who choose to enroll in the degree program will learn about the advanced clinical aspects of nursing.

"This is a significant step toward the fulfillment of the Brenau 2025 Strategic Plan and its goal to develop and implement a wide array of socially responsible, professional graduate programs, including doctorates in a number of fields," says Ed Schrader, university president.

In 2004, the member schools of the American Association of Colleges of Nursing endorsed the decision to change the current level of preparation for advanced nursing practice from the master’s degree to the doctorate level.
