The post-master's care of populations track is for master's prepared nurses who want to further develop population health management skills. In addition to the DNP core classes, a select group of classes explore health care systems, organizational dynamics, and population-focused inquiry. Five hundred hours of practice and field experience related to the student's interests enhance learning. The track is open to all master's prepared nurses.

The track can be completed online with the exception of a residency component. The residency takes place towards the end of the program during the week of graduation.
