The post-B.S.N. D.N.P. curriculum for advanced practice consists of 94 credits completed over 12 semesters. The post B.S.N. D.N.P. curriculum for health systems leadership consists of 79 credits completed over 10 semesters. Because program plans are individualized for post-B.S.N. and M.S.N. students, the number of credits and semesters needed to complete the D.N.P. program will vary depending on previous coursework and program emphasis. D.N.P. students must complete all coursework with a grade of B (3.0) or better.
The D.N.P. courses will be offered primarily in the Cook-DeVos Center for Health Sciences. State-of-the-art facilities support the use of technology to enhance student learning. A number of courses are offered in a hybrid of classroom and Web-enhanced learning formats.
