Alvernia University Now Offering Three Doctoral Degree Programs

In addition to its existing Doctor of Philosophy in Leadership and Doctor of Physical Therapy programs, Alvernia University now offers a third doctoral program at its main campus in Reading: Doctor of Nursing Practice.

Alvernia’s Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) is a terminal degree program designed to prepare advanced practice nurses for the highest level of clinical nursing practice.

“Our vision is to graduate advanced practice nurses with the skills to act as ethical leaders with moral courage,” said Karen Thacker, dean of the college of professional programs at Alvernia. “We expect this of all of our nursing graduates — from our bachelor’s in nursing through RN to BSN candidates, to our master’s in nursing, and now finally to our doctoral advanced practitioners.”

Post-Baccalaureate nurses can apply immediately and choose from one of two tracks of study: Adult Gerontology Primary Care Nurse Practitioner or Family Nurse Practitioner. Programming for Post-Master’s Advanced Practice Registered Nurses will begin summer 2016 and includes a Clinical Leadership curriculum. Graduates are expected to seek roles in direct clinical care, organizational leadership in healthcare and nursing education.

“Nurses provide an essential, professional service in our communities. These programs will give them even better opportunities to promote healthcare equity and serve as change agents for population-based healthcare delivery and health policy advocacy.”

ALVERNIA is a thriving university that empowers students through real-world learning to discover their passion for life while providing the education to turn what they love into lifetimes of career success and personal fulfillment, helping them make the world a better place. Situated on a scenic 121-acre suburban campus in historic Berks County, Pa., the university of more than 3,000 students is conveniently located near Philadelphia (60 miles) and within an easy drive of New York, Baltimore and Washington, D.C. With a College of Arts and Sciences and College of Professional Studies, Alvernia today offers more than 50 undergraduate majors and minors and a range of graduate programs at the master’s and doctoral levels through its School of Graduate and Adult Education. Satellite sites are located in Philadelphia and Schuylkill County.
