The BS to DNP program provides students in the LLU School of Nursing, who have previously earned a bachelor’s degree or higher in nursing, to prepare for an advanced level of nursing practice and clinical research. New to the Loma Linda University School of Nursing, the BS to DNP programs are designed to accommodate full-time working professionals.

Upon completion, nursing students will be able to exercise advanced levels of clinical judgment, systems thinking, and expanded responsibility, as well as become accountable for planning, implementing, and evaluating evidence-based strategies.
