What is a Doctor of Nursing Practice?

A Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) is a recognized professional degree that prepares nurses for the highest level of nursing practice. A DNP is not a physician. However, the DNP education is equivalent in intensity to other doctorate degrees. The DNP training consists of acquiring the greatest amount of scientific knowledge and practice expertise possible for nurses. Researchers have shown that there is a clear link between higher levels of nursing education and improved patient outcomes. DNPs are especially suited to serve specialty populations, such as underserved or rural populations.
What is a Family Nurse Practitioner?

Family nurse practitioners are registered nurses that have completed advanced education and training (a minimum of a master’s degree) and passed state licensure requirements. Family nurse practitioners focus on prevention, wellness, and patient education. They can diagnose and treat common medical conditions and chronic illnesses, as well as write prescriptions for medication and provide referrals. Family nurse practitioners may or may not work under the supervision of a physician.
