Chamberlain Expands Doctor Of Nursing Practice Degree Program To Include Healthcare Systems Leadership Specialty Track

Chamberlain College of Nursing launches its Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) Healthcare Systems Leadership specialty track for master’s-prepared nurses who want to pursue advanced leadership roles within their chosen specialty. The new specialty track allows students to customize their experience based on their credentials and career goals and tailor their practicum to any specialization, such as nursing informatics, health policy, practice administration or higher education administration. The Healthcare Systems Leadership specialty track joins the Advanced Practice Leadership specialty track for advanced practice registered nurses in rounding out Chamberlain’s DNP degree program.

“Chamberlain’s DNP Healthcare Systems Leadership specialty track provides students with the opportunity to design a practice-focused doctoral education around their advanced leadership goals,” said Dr. Carole Eldridge, director of graduate programs for Chamberlain College of Nursing. “Nurses are a critical part of care teams that improve patient care through heightened engagement at the bedside and system-level reforms. Our doctoral program now provides nurses with two distinct pathways to lead change and elevate the level of patient care.”

Today, less than 1 percent of nurses in the U.S. hold doctoral degrees 1. Citing the new challenges of today’s complex healthcare setting and diverse and growing patient population, the Institute of Medicine and Robert Wood Johnson Foundation recommend doubling this number by 2020. The recommendations, outlined in the 2010 report, The Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health, emphasize the role of doctoral education in nurses’ ability to lead inter-professional teams in addressing these challenges.

Chamberlain is now accepting applications for the DNP Healthcare Systems Leadership specialty track for courses beginning Jan. 6, 2014. The 12-course specialty track comprises 32 to 40 semester credit hours, including four evidence-based clinical project/practicum courses. The number of credit hours and project/practicum course hours vary depending on the amount of practicum hours completed during the student’s master’s program. Credit hours may be completed online in six semesters or two years of full-time study, offering a flexible option for actively practicing nurses.
