BSN to DNP Program
BSN to DNP In Just 3 Years
A Registered Nurse (RN) with a baccalaureate degree in nursing (BSN) who is interested in a career in advanced family practice nursing can apply for the Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) at Nebraska Methodist College.
A nurse in the DNP program is prepared with the knowledge, skills and clinical experiences necessary to practice independently or within a healthcare system in both urban and rural settings.
The BSN to DNP program requires a nurse to complete a total of 75 credit hours. Of this, 57 credit hours can be obtained via synchronous and asynchronous online learning and 18 credit hours (1,080 contact hours) are devoted to clinical practice and are completed in a preceptor experience where the student resides.
A full-time student in the DNP program can graduate in three years; a part-time student can finish in five years.
