The School of Nursing and Health Professions at the University of San Francisco has designed a vital, responsive Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) program for the baccalaureate and master's-prepared nurse.
The program of study for students with a bachelor’s degree to DNP varies from 82-94 units and takes approximately 4 years to complete. The program for the nurse with an MSN takes into account previous academic coursework and clinical experiences and the required number of units are adjusted accordingly. Courses are scheduled on an alternate teaching weekend schedule and accessible to both full and part time students. A mixed mode or hybrid format (in person and online) is used for most courses. Course assignments and expectations are geared to the needs of the working nurse professional.
Graduates of the program meet the AACN DNP outcome competencies and practice standards, including the completion of 1000 hours of supervised clinical practice. DNP milestones include successful completion of a qualifying exam and the a DNP evidence-based-practice project.
