Doctor of Nursing Practice Program

California State University, Fresno (Fresno State) and San José State University have joined together to offer a joint post-master's Doctor of Nursing Practice program. The name of the joint doctoral program is California State University, Northern Consortium Doctor of Nursing Practice (NorCal DNP). The program has been approved by the Chancellor’s office and has been accredited by Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC). The program will be seeking accreditation by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) in the near future.

The DNP is a practice degree designed to prepare nurse leaders and advanced practice nurses for evidence-based practice in patient care, leadership, and educational roles. The culminating experience for this program is a doctoral project, rather than a dissertation.

This program is designed for working professionals and will be offered in an online format with occasional intensive sessions held alternately on the Fresno State and San José campuses. The program follows the cohort model, there is no part-time option. This is a 5 semester, 37 unit program that can be completed in 21 months of full-time study.

Application will be available October 1, 2014.
