Course Plan for POST-Baccalaureate DNP – Family Practice Specialization

The 82 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 (DNP Scholarly Project) which is designed through student and faculty committee collaboration. Projects are designed to improve the quality and delivery of a selected aspect of health care.
