The Doctor of Nursing Practice - Post Master (DNP-PM) program at Wichita State University is a terminal degree in nursing that offers an alternative to research-focused doctoral programs. The DNP degree meets the need of nurses who would like to pursue doctoral study, and focus on practice rather than research.
The American Association of College of Nursing (AACN) has promoted the DNP degree as the highest level of nursing education in response to the increased complexity of healthcare, the disparity among healthcare disciplines, and the vast amount of knowledge needed for advanced practice nurses.
