The Nell Hodgson Woodruff School of Nursing is now accepting applications for its new Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) degree program. The program targets registered nurses seeking a terminal degree in nursing practice as an alternative to a research-intensive PhD program.
DNP students will immerse themselves in a rigorous advanced practice curriculum, leadership development, residency hours, and a capstone project in a focused area of inquiry. Courses will be taught online and on site in classes that will take place over three weekends each semester.
The Hugh P. Davis Lectureship is funded through an endowment established by the family and friends of Dr. Hugh P. Davis to bring nationally recognized nursing leaders to Emory for the benefit of students, faculty and the nursing community.
The 2014 lecture, Older Adults: Multiple Dimensions for Health Disparities, will be presented by Dr. Heather Young, Associate Vice Chancellor for Nursing and Dean and Professor at the UC Davis Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing, and will take place Monday, April 7 at 4 p.m. A reception will follow.
