Metropolitan State University offers a DNP program with entry at one of three levels depending upon previous nursing preparation.
- The BSN to DNP option is for nurses who have a baccalaureate degree in nursing and would like to be prepared for the Advanced Practice Registered Nurse (APRN) role of Family Nurse Practitioner.
- The Post-Master's option is for individuals already holding a master's degree in an advanced nursing practice specialty. This option is under development and is not available for admission in 2013.
- The Post-Entry Level Master's option is for nurses who have earned an entry-level master's degree in nursing and who would like to be prepared for the Advanced Practice Registered Nurse (APRN) role of Family Nurse Practitioner. This option is under development and is not available for admission in 2013.
Metropolitan State University has received full authorization by the Higher Learning Commission to offer the Doctor of Nursing Practice degree. Additional initial program accreditation from the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) will be sought in Spring 2013 when the other nursing programs at Metropolitan State University are due for reaccreditation.
