All students taking graduate level courses will have their classes on Tuesdays. All courses require online synchronous and asynchronous activities.
Students may “opt out” after the completion of the final course in the Family Nurse Practitioner Track, the Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner Track, the Adult/Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner Track and the Adult/Gerontology Primary Care Nurse Practitioner, 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.
