Prepare to lead. Lead to transform.

The BS to DNP online program offers streamlined pathways for bachelor’s- and master’s-prepared nurses to earn their Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) degree while specializing as either an Adult Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner (AGNP) or a Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP). For nurses who already hold an advanced practice degree – like NPs, CRNAs or midwives – our post-master’s track doesn’t include any nurse practitioner coursework.
