My DNP education at Edgewood College expanded my thinking from the bedside and organizational perspective to a broad population health, policy and research view. I use my DNP knowledge and skills daily as I consider nursing practice and programming, quality improvement and leading others. The Edgewood program is supportive of working adults with professors who care about your professional interests and individual development. The program is a journey of personal, scholarly and professional growth which made me a better nursing leader.
