Online DNP

  1. Can anyone tell me from first hand experience about any "totally online" DNP programs? I am looking at Grand Canyon University currently as I completed my BSN through them. The school I am attending and about to graduate with my MSN from, does not offer doctorate degrees in nursing. I just want to know what all my options are. I do not want to travel anywhere for even orientation. Thanks...

    I have had mixed experience with online programs; it depends on the school. Regarding Grand Canyon, be sure to download their student handbook and check the grading system. An A used to be 97% and up, making it unnecessarily difficult to receive high marks and easier to fail bec it is easier to drop below a B (the cutoff for a B was higher than other schools). This unusual grading system only applied to Nursing, too. Independently verify anything the admissions reps tell you. Hope you find your match; best of luck!

    One of our frequent posters completed the online DNP educational leadership program at Touro University. The program, according to her, was accelerated and more affordable than most other DNP programs.

    I am considering Wilkes and Chamberlain for the online DNP program. 100% online.
