Saint Mary's College has a rich history of educating nurses with a patient-centered focus. Our Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) program takes it a step further—men and women will be equipped to create better systems of care not only for individual patients, but broader populations.

With a unique curriculum that includes courses on data analytics and social entrepreneurship, you'll emerge ready to:

  • Devise solutions to unmet healthcare
  • Develop the entrepreneurial skills to invent new cost-effective approaches to care
  • Advance sustainable solutions to create social value for small- and large-scale populations


  • Did you know that only 1% of nurses in the country hold a doctoral degree? Become one of them with a degree from SMC.

    Take the next step. Learn more about becoming a DNP.
