BSN to DNP Program


The UWO College of Nursing is now offering a MSN FNP step-out option within the BSN to DNP FNP Emphasis. Review the BSN to DNP FNP plan of study for curriculum details. Reach out to us at for more information.

The Doctor of Nursing Practice–Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) Emphasis is a BSN to DNP program offered in a full-time (three year) or part-time (four year) plan of study. This hybrid program prepares graduates for the highest level of nursing practice by integrating courses in evidence-based practice, informatics, leadership, collaboration, and knowledge of systems and healthcare policy with specialized FNP education. Graduates of the program are eligible to sit for the FNP certification examination.

In addition to online coursework, some classes take place on the UWO campus. This DNP program culminates in an intensive FNP residency immersion and completion of a scholarly project.

DNP tuition and fees can be found on the Student Financial Services website
