California expands DNP program possibilities

With the passage of AB 422 (Arambula) in mid-October 2017, Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) degree programs may be offered at California State Universities in the future. Based on a successful pilot program to test DNP programs at CSUs, the legislature and governor recognize the value and potential of expanding such programs throughout the state’s CSU system, which is more geographically dispersed and accessible than the University of California system.
