Apply to D.N.P.
Application to the School of Graduate Studies is open from April 1 to August 15 for the following fall admission.
All applicants must have a bachelor's degree in the area of nursing (B.S.N. or B.A.N.). If you are working on attaining your bachelor's degree and will have it completed before the start of the program (i.e., fall semester), you may apply to the program prior to the deadline of August 15.
UND receives approximately 90 applications to our program each year. As the job market remains very strong for CRNAs, we anticipate receiving many applications for each new class of students. UND seeks to admit between 18-20 students each year with classes beginning in August.
Admission into our program is competitive. All submitted applications are reviewed by our admissions committee. All aspects of the application are thoroughly evaluated by the committee, including GPA, clinical experience, reference letters, and the personal statement. Interview offers are extended to those applicants the committee feels are most qualified.
If selected, interviews are usually held in early November. Each interview is approximately 30 minutes, during which the interviewee will meet with several faculty members, clinical coordinators, and program faculty.
