Student Testimonials

JMU’s DNP program greatly impacted my professional growth. Since graduating, I have transitioned into a Quality Improvement Coordinator role that allows me to use my DNP education on a daily basis. I have also had the opportunity to continue my work on nurse-to-nurse incivility with the Virginia Nurses Association. -

The immediate and personal response to my initial inquiry to JMU’s DNP program is the reason I chose JMU. No other program responded as promptly or kindly. I could not be more thankful to have chosen this program and feel it has created opportunities for growth in ways I could not have imagined. -
