Difference between a DNP and a PhD in nursing

What is the difference between a DNP and a PhD in nursing? Which of these would you choose to pursue if you decide to continue your education to the doctoral level?
If I were choosing between the two options, my choice would be to pursue the DNP. I enjoy bedside medicine and patient care. I feel my strengths are geared towards treating healthcare issues at the base level which is at the bedside. I feel the engagement between patient and provider is where I am the strongest and could continue to remain most effective in that role.
