Students are admitted as a cohort into the post-master's DNP program during the fall semester. Didactic courses in the program are offered online. However, students will be required to participate in on-campus activities immediately prior to the start of the program and at the conclusion of the program when presenting synthesis projects. In addition, there are several courses in the curriculum (residency courses) with practicum requirements. Prior to enrolling in NURS 801 Biostatistics, students must provide evidence of completion of a graduate level statistics course. A graduate level statistics course must be approved by the DNP Program Coordinator. Students must meet all criteria for admission to graduate studies at Southeastern Louisiana University.
