About the Post-Master's DNP

Can I work while I go to school?
The DNP program is constructed for nurses who are working.  If you are entering the DNP program with an MSN, it’s manageable to work full-time during the two year program of study.  You will be very busy, but you can be successful.

Are classes offered at night or on weekends?
Courses are offered in a hybrid format with monthly on-campus meetings on Friday evenings and Saturdays.

Are any classes offered online?
All our courses have an online component, so comfort with computers is really important. 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.

How long will it take me to complete my degree?
The program can be completed in 4 consecutive semesters (21 months) of full-time study,

What is the minimum GRE score required for the program?
The GRE is not required for the post-master's DNP.
