Who We Are

DNPs of Color (DOCs), is a 501c3 nonprofit nursing organization, whose mission is to increase diversity in doctoral studies, clinical practice, and leadership for nurses. DNP, short for Doctor of Nursing Practice, is the highest level of education a nurse can attain which focuses on clinical practice. DNPs influence healthcare outcomes through healthcare policy, organizational leadership, and translating nursing research into evidenced-based practice.

DOCs will provide online communities for nurses of color who have obtained or are working towards obtaining their DNP. DOCs activities will include organizing celebrations, hosting speaker events, conferences, and establishing collaborative partnerships with nursing schools across the U.S. DOC’s top priority would  focus on peer networking and mentoring.

With DOCs, we intend to create supportive environments that will help inspire, empower, and transform the landscape of nursing to include more diversity in nursing practice.
