With goal-focused coursework and convenient, fully online scheduling, South College makes your success our top priority. Our student services and financial aid departments are here to help you.

South College’s Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) program with a Concentration in Nurse Executive is designed to prepare transformational advanced practice nurse leaders and clinicians who can provide the highest quality health care for patients, families, communities, and populations. In our online courses, you can develop your organizational leadership, critical thinking, and communication skills through activities like online patient case discussions and evidence-based reviews with peers and faculty. You’ll also have the opportunity to learn via online lectures from qualified nursing faculty as well as through practicums at approved healthcare facilities.
Our program allows BSN-prepared nurses to pursue a DNP degree via a BSN-to-DNP pathway, while MSN-prepared nurses may be able to complete the program in less time and with fewer courses via our Post-Master’s-to-DNP pathway.
