MSN to DNP

MSN to DNP students can choose one of three entry points depending on the individual’s previous academic and professional credentials. Specialty coursework is required for non-APRN or for an APRN seeking an additional specialty.

  • MSN-DNP + specialty curriculum  An APRN seeking a DNP with a second specialty or a Master’s prepared student that is not an APRN will complete the MSN-DNP curriculum and an additional 14-28 credit hours for their chosen specialty. 
  • MSN (APRN) to DNP  APRN seeking a DNP without a second specialty

Upon receipt of your official college transcripts and gap analysis review, your program of study will be created based on your previous academic coursework and professional credentials. Please contact Jessica Jackey, Coordinator of Academic Affairs, at jdjack05@louisville.edu to discuss the MSN-DNP progression plans.
