WEDNESDAY WORD: DNP Program Focuses on Population Health

WEDNESDAY WORD: DNP Program Focuses on Population Health

Posted on 18 May 2022 by Khadijah

Health care continues to evolve and nursing is changing with it. One advanced nursing focus is population health. It’s a pathway to a leading-edge career that drives health care delivery.

Today, health care is emphasizing primary and preventive care in managing the health of groups of people. Ultimately, population health improves quality of care and lowers cost. Nurses are vital in managing population health through their roles in communities, schools, businesses, homes and hospitals.

To meet the growing need of population health management, Goldfarb School of Nursing at Barnes-Jewish College offers the Doctor of Nurse Practice (DNP) in Nursing Health Systems and Population Health Leadership concentration with an emphasis on operational excellence. The three-year program was designed in partnership with Washington University.

This unique, innovative track is offered to BSN- and MSN-prepared registered nurses who want to pursue advanced leadership positions in a variety of health care settings. Graduates will be prepared to assume roles ranging from entry-level management to executive positions within acute care, community and public health, ambulatory and other continuum spanning organizations.

This concentration includes the core curriculum from the Doctor of Nursing Practice program, courses from the master’s program in Health Systems and Population Health Leadership concentration, and five interprofessional theory courses from McKelvey School of Engineering at Washington University, Health Care Operational Excellence Program.

Students in the program will graduate with double the credentials. You’ll earn a DNP from Goldfarb as well as a graduate certificate from Washington University’s McKelvey School of Engineering Health Care Operational Excellence Program.

Through the Health Systems and Population Health Leadership concentration, you’ll plan, implement and evaluate a scholarly evidence-based project. When you graduate, you’ll be a nurse leader equipped with the ability to identify and solve problems, improve access to care complexities, manage operational efficiencies and increase patient safety in the health care environment.

Be a thought leader on a whole new level. The next term begins this fall. Learn more about this DNP in Nursing Health Systems and Population Health Leadership.
