The MSN to DNP, or Post-MSN program is a hybrid program offering the flexibility of distance education coupled with the benefits of face-to-face learning. Students attend on-campus intensives two weekends each semester while completing course work through distance learning.

This program offers four tracks: DNP Advanced Practice track; DNP Nursing Informatics and Data Science track; DNP Health Systems Leadership track; and DNP in Emergency Care track for those who are currently FNPs. The program ranges from 34 to 55 units in length depending upon the track selected.

Students in the DNP in Emergency Care for Family Nurse Practitioners track complete DNPC610 on campus during the summer session.
