Director's Welcome to School of Nursing
Dr. Kimberly Ferren Carter
The DNP program features concentrations in Family Nurse Practitioner, as well as Nurse Midwifery and Psychiatric Mental Health initiative courses in collaboration with Shenandoah University.
We have programs of study available for post-BSN, post-Masters (non-clinical), and post-MSN (clinical, FNP, CNS, and CNM) students. We also have full-time and part-time options.
Expert doctorally-prepared educators with clinical certifications provide current, clinical expertise in a caring and exciting learning environment that is accessible and convenient to students. Strong support systems are in place for students in this technology-rich, yet faculty-student-engaged distance learning environment. In 2012 the US News and World Report ranked RU School of Nursing’s DNP program as 23rd in the nation in student services and technology.
Radford University celebrated our Centennial in 2010. As we move forward in our second century of educational excellence, we invite you to become a part of Radford University School of Nursing’s DNP program and embark upon a journey that will transform your nursing career.
