Post-Master’s DNP

If you found your passion with your master's degree, dig into it a little deeper with a DNP.

Nurses who have a master’s degree in any of the 12 focus areas that are offered by the UIC College of Nursing may apply for a post-master’s DNP. The program will include didactic coursework as well as a DNP project and practicum experience. The DNP practicum, combined with clinical hours earned in the master’s degree, will bring each student to the 1,000 clinical hours required to earn a DNP. All students applying to this program must submit verification of post-baccalaureate clinical hours, and APRNs must also submit proof of their advanced practice certification, prior to initial course enrollment.
