Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) Program

The Tan Chingfen Graduate School of Nursing DNP program is committed to transforming advanced nursing practice in preparing nurse practitioners and advanced nurse practice leaders.  

The GEP to DNP & BSN to DNP cohorts entering the GSN for Fall 2021 will be the last class to receive the Master’s in Passing. The DNP curriculum will no longer offer a Master’s degree in accordance with the current DNP degree program requirements.
