The Post-Baccalaureate DNP track consists of 72 credits of coursework and includes 1,000 supervised clinical practicum hours. The patient population focus is families and individuals across the lifespan (Family Nurse Practitioner). Courses are delivered on a part-time basis, using a low-residency model, which includes online coursework with two on-campus visits. Clinical practicum hours may be completed in the student’s community with an approved preceptor. In addition to clinical practicum experiences, students may choose to take elective courses in nursing or other areas of graduate study.
The DNP program received full accreditation from the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) in 2016, meeting nationally mandated standards.
