Graduate Programs

The Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) degree is designed for nurses seeking the highest graduate degree in nursing practice. The program includes two options leading to the DNP degree: the post-master's option and the post-BSN option.

The post-master’s option prepares graduates for practice leadership roles in a variety of health care settings. The post-BSN option includes two specialty concentrations: Adult/Gerontology Primary Care (AGPC) and Family/Individual Across the Lifespan (FIAL).


The Doctor of Nursing Practice at Temple University is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (http://www.aacn.nche.edu/ccne-accreditation) through 2027.
