Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP)

A 25% tuition is applied to 700- and 800-level courses.

Two Degree Options

  • Post-Graduate DNP for MSN graduates
  • BSN-DNP for BSN graduates who will then choose a track as a nurse practitioner or nurse leader

Full- or part-time enrollment is available.

Clinical Requirements - Students in a Post-Licensure Nursing Program

The DNP degree requires 1000 clinical hours beyond the BSN degree. The 1000 hours is inclusive of any clinical hours completed in a Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) degree. A gap analysis will be completed upon admission to determine the individualized number of clinical hours required for each student in order to meet the required 1000 hours. A minimum of 400 clinical hours will be completed by every student in the DNP program.
