Students will begin formal post-master’s DNP coursework with their peers in the fall of year one and continue on a 3.5 year sequence that relies primarily on the fall and spring terms for DNP coursework and the three intermediate summer terms and the fourth fall for MBA courses.  The DNP curriculum complies with accreditation standards set by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) which ensures the quality and integrity of baccalaureate and graduate programs in nursing.
