About Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP)

Ramapo College of New Jersey offers a mainly online, post-master’s Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) designed for nurses seeking a terminal degree in nursing practice.

Ramapo’s 36-credit practice-based program offers an alternative to research-focused doctoral programs, placing greater emphasis on practice and less emphasis on theory, research methodology and statistics. DNP-prepared nurses are well equipped to fully implement the science developed by nurse researchers prepared in PhD, DNSc and other research-focused nursing doctorates.
