Mennonite College of Nursing is launching a bachelor’s in nursing (BSN) to doctor in nursing practice (DNP) program. The addition will address a national need, as only 13 percent of nurses in the U.S. hold a graduate degree.

Two sequences that will be offered are a family nurse practitioner (FNP) degree and nursing leadership and management (NLM). The FNP is online with on-campus components. It builds on the college’s prestigious FNP master’s program, which boasts a 99 percent pass rate on the national certification exam. The NLM sequence is fully online. U.S. News & World Report consistently ranks MCN’s online programs among the best in the nation.

“This program builds on what we as a college already know: Nurses are brilliant, hardworking, caring individuals who play a critical role in reshaping and improving health in our communities and are more than capable of earning an advanced degree,” said Associate Dean for Academic Support Janeen Mollenhauer.

“We are dedicated to building programs that eliminate barriers for working adult learners and make the journey to an advanced degree imaginable, actionable, and achievable.”
