Purdue Board of Trustees Approves Doctor of Nursing Program at IPFW
"Florence NightDonGale"
The Board of Trustees of Purdue University has approved a system-wide proposal for a Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP), the first doctorate degree program ever to be offered at IPFW. "This is a major milestone for IPFW and is in response to community needs in advanced nursing practice," said Chancellor Vicky Carwein. "This program will put more nurses out on the front lines who possess the highest level of clinical education." The first students in the DNP program will be admitted for spring 2015, following an accreditation visit. It is anticipated that the program will enroll 10 students in the first year. Read the story
