Doctorate of Nursing Practice

The announcement that the University's College of Nursing has launched new doctorate of nursing practice (DNP) to enhance nurses' clinical and leadership skills extended well beyond the Rhode Island borders. The program director Patricia Burbank was interviewed by the Providence Journal and the Associated Press report was carried by the Boston Globe and media nationwide including The Republic (Indiana). Broadcast media statewide and some of their sister stations nationwide reported the news as well. In addition, the new program was written about in the Graduate Guide online.
