The School of Nursing is in the process of revising the DNP curriculum. The revised curriculum will be implemented in autumn quarter 2013.
- As a reminder, please know that most School of Nursing faculty are on 9-month appointments. While some faculty are either on-campus and/or responding to email in the summer months, most are not. Faculty return to campus officially on September 16, 2013.

August 13, 2013
Curriculum grids for DNP 2.0 specialty tracks are now available! These grids are for students who are beginning the DNP program in autumn 2013.
We have a Graduate School-approved transition plan that, wherever possible, meets the needs of our currently enrolled MN and DNP students. We will support your ability to graduate on time, make no changes that increase your cost, and allow you to choose curricular options that are the least restrictive for you. Using these principles, the transition plan will ensure that, wherever possible, students in DNP 1.0 or the MN are able to complete the appropriate degree requirements in a timely manner.
