Loyola University New Orleans’ School of Nursing has expanded its commitment to preparing the primary care workforce and is holding several online open houses in August for qualified nurses interested in pursuing a Doctor of Nursing Practice degree.

The open houses will offer information about the post-Master of Science in Nursing to Doctor of Nursing Practice program and the newly-created post-Bachelor of Science in Nursing to Doctor of Nursing Practice program. Interested students are encouraged to log in to the open house and research the requirements and curriculum on Loyola’s website. Students interested in pursuing a D.N.P. degree are encouraged to contact the school at 504-865-3142 for more information.
