Nursing Practice, Post-Master’s DNP Course Plan

Curricular content is reflective of standards set forth by CCNE professional associations of the nurse practitioner specialty tracks. The program is a sequential curriculum beginning in the fall semester of each year. The program consists of 35 to 37 credit hours delivered over a six-semester, part-time course of study. Coursework is completed via a hybrid platform of on-campus and off-campus sessions. Some courses require pre- or co-requisites (see course descriptions). In addition to didactic coursework, students will complete and present their doctoral scholarly project during the last semester of the program as part of their on-campus session requirements. The scholarly project demonstrates the synthesis of concepts and skills learned while enrolled in the program.
