Post-BSN-DNP Curriculum

Program Links
All students taking graduate level courses will have their classes on Tuesdays. They must make sure that the entire day is available for course meetings and other activities. Most courses are offered in an online format. Some courses are offered in a combined format of limited (≤ 3) on-campus class meetings in addition to online meetings. Students may “opt out” after the completion of the final course in the Family Nurse Practitioner Track or the Psychiatric/Mental Health Nurse Practitioner Track and receive their MSN degree. Students are then eligible to sit for their national certification exam in their specialty. If students choose this option, they will have 4 years to return and complete the remaining DNP courses without retaking any courses.

All courses require online synchronous and asynchronous activities. Students are also required to attend a Graduate Intensive. The Graduate Intensive is a mandatory program orientation via on-line modules and a maximum of four days of on-campus workshops. Students are required to participate in the Graduate Intensive before the fall semester start of their program of study and annually. Students are responsible for the costs associated with this Graduate Intensive. Students will be notified of the Graduate Intensive dates after acceptance into the program and during each year of study.
