LA CROSSE, Wisconsin (WXOW) Viterbo University is offering a doctor of nursing program this fall.
It's the first doctoral program for Viterbo. University President Rick Artman says it will enhance the school's profile while filling a growing need for a higher level of nursing education.
Viterbo's Graduate Nursing Program Director says, "It's a realization that we need to know more. We need to impact patient outcomes in a more effective way. We need to be involved at the system level while making improvements in quality and having that impact on patient care."
Earning a bachelor's degree in nursing is about four years. The masters degree is another three and earning the doctorate will require another year.
