Chamberlain College of Nursing and National Association of Hispanic Nurses Add Doctor of Nursing Practice Degree Program to National Education Program
Washington, DC and Downers Grove, Ill. (May 24, 2013) — The National Association of Hispanic Nurses (NAHN) is pleased to announce that it has signed a new educational program agreement with Corporate Member Chamberlain College of Nursing.
In addition to the special tuition rate for Chamberlain's post licensure online programs established in the 2012 program (see http://www.nahnnet.org/2012_Chamberlain_NAHN_Membership1.html), the program will now include a special tuition rate for Chamberlain's Doctorate of Nursing Practice (DNP) degree program (see http://www.chamberlain.edu/DNP).
In 2010, Hispanics made up 16 percent of the U.S. population, but only 6 percent of Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program students, 5 percent of registered nurse (RN) to BSN students and 4 percent of students enrolled in master's programs1. Chamberlain's program with NAHN can help narrow this gap by making advanced education in nursing more accessible and increasing the number of nurses who can provide culturally sensitive care to Hispanic patients.
"We are very happy to renew and enhance our program with Chamberlain to offer our members discounted tuition rates for a Doctorate-level program, " said NAHN President Jose Alejandro, PhD, RN-BC, MBA, CCM, FACHE. "These types of programs align with our mission to advance the educational skills of our members."
Through this education program, members of NAHN who meet Chamberlain's admission requirements can now receive a special tuition rate for Chamberlain's RN to BSN online degree option, RN-BSN to Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) online option, MSN degree program, and DNP degree program. Benefits also include a waived application fee and a designated Chamberlain admissions representative who will provide enrollment assistance specifically for NAHN members.
“Nurses have an opportunity to lead the transformation of healthcare toward improved care and innovative practices, but only with access to high quality education – at all levels, said Dr. W. Richard Cowling, vice president of academic affairs for Chamberlain College of Nursing. “We are proud to enhance Chamberlain’s education program with NAHN and give more nurses the tools to continue their education and meet their career goals, as well as emerging needs in healthcare.”
