Anyone applying to UIC's graduate entry program starting Jan. 2013? I've glanced at the threads from the past couple of year's and thought I'd start one for the next application cycle. I'm finishing up pre-reqs and taking the GRE in a month. Good luck to all who plan on applying!

I spoke with the admission director at Johns Hopkins about this very issue. According to her, she strongly believes this DNP program will not be an industry standard because it would take all 50 states to agree. In addition, if it was decided that DNP became the new standard instead of a MSN, we would be grandfathered in depending upon our entry date.
It is possible to get a DNP without having any experience because there are programs out there or universities will begin to rollout programs within the next year. One school that I know of is eliminating their Entry MSN program and turing it into an Entry DNP program.
