A doctor of nursing practice is generally achieved following completion of 4 to 5 semesters or 38-48 credit hours, with a master degree prerequisite. The DNP nurses are expert level nurses practicing in advanced clinical settings at the highest level of nursing.

I declined the offer as my children were young and I did not think I could juggle family time, school and work. I applaud those of you that are able to pull off working full time, school, in addition to having small childre
