MBA/DNP Dual Degree

MBA/DNP Dual Degree

Registered nurses with their BSN degree can prepare for leadership roles, and influence systems of care with Viterbo University's integrated BSN-to-MBA/DNP program. This integrated dual degree program provides registered nurses who have a BSN a direct path to their career goals while saving time and money, preparing them with the doctoral level nursing Essentials as well as the critical business and management skills needed by successful health care leaders.

There are two options for entry to the MBA/DNP Dual Degree Program:

  • an entry point for students who have earned a MSN degree, and
  • an entry point for students who have completed the Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree.

Students with a BSN who already hold a master's degree in business or a related field can complete the DNP through another pathway - the post-Master's to DNP Ethical Leadership (non-NP) track (see track information on the Plans of Study page).
