Frequently Asked Questions

About the BSN-to-DNP Program

How long will it take me to complete my degree?
The program can be completed in 6 consecutive semesters of full-time study plus some coursework during the summers.  This equals 33 months to complete the program.

What is the minimum GRE score required for the program?
We do not require a minimum score for the GRE. GRE scores are evaluated on an individual basis within the context of the applicant's total application package.

How can I find information about tuition and fees?
The Office of Student Financial Services has information regarding tuition and fees on its website:

Can I work while I go to school?
Many students find that the adhering to Belmont's rigorous clinical expectations make it difficult or impossible to maintain outside employment after the first clinical semester. While some students do choose to continue working, the responsibility for managing the balance between class, clinical and work requirements falls entirely on the student.

Are classes offered at night or on weekends?
The 5000 level graduate courses meet just once a week during the day and are clustered on 2 to 3 days per week.  The 6000 level graduate courses are offered in a hybrid format with on-campus meetings on 4 weekends each semester.

Are any classes offered online?
All our courses have an online component, so comfort with computers is really important. Belmont graduate nursing classes combine on-campus experiences with appropriate technology, however, none of our classes are offered completely online. We have found the personal student-instructor contact in the classroom is a valuable component in our students' success.
