Starting in Spring 2022, the online Post Baccalaureate Doctor of Nursing Practice (PB DNP) program will offer the Primary Care Family Nurse Practitioner (PC-FNP) option. The PB DNP program is focused on leadership and innovation. Graduates will be eligible to sit for the Family Nurse Practitioner certification exam.
The PB DNP admits cohorts twice a year with start dates in January and August. Applicants will be scheduled for a virtual interview when their application is complete. Asynchronous courses are delivered 100% online in 8-week blocks so students may plan their own study times.
The PB DNP program has 14 foundation core courses. After completing the foundational core, students will enter the PC-FNP option. The PB DNP program can be completed in 4.5 years or in 3.5 years with an accelerated plan of study.
Students in both options will work with dedicated nursing faculty to design, implement and evaluate their capstone quality improvement project. Students will present their DNP project at our DNP Scholarly Symposium at the end of the program.
