(This amendment requests additional funding to expand its current Doctor of Nursing Practice program to (1) graduate more Nurse Practitioners and (2) prepare more qualified future nursing faculty. Doctoral-level education is now required for Nurse Practitioners and masters-level education is required for nursing faculty. This program produces graduates with the option to either go into practice or teach nursing, or both. The three-year program would launch in Spring 2023 and graduate 24 students per year.)
