Online Courses for a Doctor of Nursing Practice Curriculum 


Jones & Bartlett Learning has developed a unique set of online courses aligned with the American Association of Colleges of Nursing's (AACN) Essentials of Doctoral Education for Advanced Nursing Practice Document, the QSEN Competencies, and IOM Core Competencies. We have created 12 distinct, online courses in concert with experts from leading nursing programs, as well as subject matter experts and instructional designers. Each course draws content from premier Jones & Bartlett Learning texts and can either be used for individual courses or as part of a traditional Doctor of Nursing Practice Curriculum.

Each online course combines cutting-edge courseware, course management tools, and authoritative content to help meet evolving student needs. These courses can accommodate a variety of learning styles as well as teaching methods.
