In the most recent U.S. News and World Report's rankings of top nursing schools in the country, the UK College of Nursing's Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) program ranked number 8 among all public universities across the country. The program was ranked number 30 out of all nursing schools nationally.
In 2001, the UK College of Nursing became the first in the nation to offer a DNP program. The program prepares nurses for advanced practice, clinical leadership and executive positions in health care systems. The first class of DNP students graduated in 2005.
