On behalf of Dean Linda McCauley, faculty, and staff of the Nell Hodgson Woodruff School of Nursing at Emory University, I am excited to welcome you to the DNP Program webpage. Thank you for considering Emory in your educational journey!

I am Shawana S. Moore, Director of the DNP Program. I lead this program using a student-centered approach and genuinely enjoy engaging with students to support their growth and development as leaders within the profession of nursing.

The Emory School of Nursing's DNP program is recognized as a national leader. The program is facilitated by national leaders and experts within the profession of nursing. We have numerous distinguished clinical and community partners that will support your learning experience at Emory. After graduation, our students lead health and healthcare improvements within specific contexts such as health systems, public-private ventures, non-profit organizations, communities, public health, and policy. Some go on the lead entrepreneurial and innovation initiatives. Most importantly, our alumni are innovative, forward-thinking change agents in the various healthcare sectors who provide sustainable solutions to complex challenges.
