Find out more about DNP

The UWEC nursing program deepened my passion for nursing more than I ever thought possible. It prepared me to approach my current practice as a registered nurse holistically with a focus on the patient above all else. This program inspired me to consistently strive to be the best I can be. I have such trust and loyalty in the UWEC College of Nursing and Health Sciences, that I chose to continue my education here in the Doctorate of Nursing Practice Program.
