Doctor of Nursing Practice

The DNP is a practice-oriented doctorate, such as the Doctor of Pharmacy, Doctor of Medicine (MD), Doctor of Optometry, or Doctor of Physical Therapy, in contrast to the research-oriented PhD.  The purposes of the DNP are to develop advanced competencies for increasingly complex practice, faculty, and leadership roles in nursing and to provide an advanced educational credential for those in advanced practice.

The Doctor of Nursing Practice Program will be offered through a Consortium of Schools of Nursing at California State University, Fullerton, Long Beach and Los Angeles. 

Please complete an interest form and we will place you on our mailing list.

Please see the DNP Viewsheet or Frequently Asked Questions for more information.

For more information about the DNP program, please RSVP to and attend an information session. If you are unable to attend an information session, you may view the slides from the presentation and e-mail us with any questions you have.

You may find additional information about this program on the website of CSU Fullerton.
