Course Plan for Post-Baccalaureate DNP - Geriatric-Adult Acute Care

The 80 credit post-baccalaureate DNP program may be completed in four years of part-time study over 12 continuous semesters. Although all students will be enrolled in the same courses, each post-baccalaureate DNP student will choose a scholarly project (the capstone project) which is designed by the student in collaboration with a faculty committee to improve the quality and delivery of a selected aspect of health care practices.
