Loyola's Doctor of Nursing Practice Application Deadline Extended
Date:2/6/2010

Popularity of online nursing degree program extended to accommodate demand from applicants.

(PRWEB) February 6, 2010 -- The deadline to apply to the first Doctor of Nursing Practice degree program offered in the state of Louisiana has been extended to Feb. 25. The program, approved by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, is administered by the Loyola University New Orleans School of Nursing and will be delivered exclusively online.

Eight students have already been admitted through the early admission process, and Loyola expects to enroll a full class of 25 post-master’s degree students by this summer. Within five years, the program is expected to grow to 125 students.

The first student to be accepted into the program is Titilola Adebanjo, a board-certified nurse practitioner from Memphis, Tenn., who strives for the highest degree in the nursing profession to meet the needs of the rapidly-changing health care system. She sought out Loyola’s DNP program for its flexibility and strong standing in the nursing community.

“Every nurse is a leader there,” Adebanjo said, echoing the school’s vision to educate professional nurses who lead change and translate science into practice in a dynamic global health care environment.
“I looked at the school and what it stands for, and I also looked at programs that would allow me to keep my full-time employment. The online nursing program was very attractive to me as a family woman. I don’t have to sit in a classroom for hours,” she said.

Another acceptee, Monica Urdiales Alleman agreed.

“I have very strong feelings of how exceptional the professors are, how well suited the program is for those with family and/or work responsibilities and how the program fosters a sense of cohesion among its students,” Alleman said.

Since 1979, Loyola’s School of Nursing has been on the cutting edge of innovative programs in health care, keeping pace with dramatic changes in nursing education. It has graduated 1,200 registered nurses with baccalaureate degrees and more than 500 advanced nursing practice providers with master’s degrees.

As nursing shortages plague hospitals across the country, Loyola continues to produce highly skilled nurses with advanced degrees, educated in the Jesuit tradition of social justice, critical thinking and service to the community.

“I turned offers down because I truly believed that what Loyola offered far outweighed what any other university could offer,” Alleman said. “The critical thinking, the social justice thread, the emphasis on respect for one’s community and the ability to know that I would succeed at Loyola was worth the tuition.”
According to School of Nursing Director Ann H. Cary, Ph.D., M.P.H., R.N., A-CCC, this DNP program will take a unique approach with emphasis on the translation of science and research findings to patient care and health care systems innovation.

“The application of informatics, organizational analysis and implementation science is critical to health care effectiveness,” Cary said. “We intend to incorporate the use of integrated behavioral health approaches in primary care practices as a method to address effective health care delivery.”

Gwen George, D.N.P., F.N.P.-B.C., coordinator of Loyola’s DNP program, added, “This is particularly important in New Orleans and other areas of the country where mental health resources are scarce.”
The Doctor of Nursing Practice degree program will admit those who hold a master’s degree as a nurse practitioner with a focus in family/adult, women’s health, pediatric or gerontology. To apply now, visit Loyola's School of Nursing web page.
