Doctor of Nursing Practice
Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP): The Marcella Niehoff School of Nursing offers three Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) options: the post-MSN General track, the post-MSN Informatics & Outcomes track, and the post-BSN Infection Prevention track. All course work can be completed online, but each track requires two intensive weekend immersions in Chicago and a clinical practicum.
The U.S. Department of Education requires any institution offering distance education/online programs to students outside of its home state to acquire authorization from the states in which students reside. Regulations vary from state to state. While Loyola University Chicago is authorized, exempt or pursuing authorization in most states, some restrictions apply. Please see our State Authorization page for the most up-to-date information.
