Doctoral Program Receives ICHE Approval
The Indiana Commission for Higher Education (ICHE) has approved the Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) program, the first doctoral program offered on a regional university campus in the state. The DNP program will be offered collaboratively by IPFW, Purdue West Lafayette, and Purdue University Calumet. The three campuses will jointly coordinate the program so that students from one campus will be able to take courses offered by the other two. Final approval of the program by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association is anticipated later this year. Read the story
