Family Nurse Practitioner - BSN to DNP

The BSN to DNP option is for students who already have a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and want to fast track earning the terminal degree in nursing practice.

This option is ideal if you had a strong undergraduate career and you want to advance to the top of your field quickly. While you’re earning the DNP, you’ll gain the same skills and knowledge as you would if you completed a Master of Science in Nursing degree with a family nurse practitioner concentration, along with the advanced knowledge you’ll gain in the DNP program. Pursuing the BSN to DNP option is also much faster than earning a BSN, a MSN, and then a DNP in succession.
