Program Description:

The online Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) to Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) program from Georgetown University School of Nursing & Health Studies enables licensed registered nurses (RNs) with a BSN to practice at the highest level of clinical care. Offered on a full-time basis, the terminal degree program can be completed in 33 months. Through live online classes, hands-on clinical experiences, and a curriculum grounded in evidence-based practice, the program develops advanced practice nurses who can step into leadership roles throughout the health system — as advocates for socially just health policy, team leaders in clinical settings, or as innovators at the systems level. Students may choose one of four advanced practice specialty areas: Adult Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner (AG-ACNP), Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP), dual Nurse-Midwifery/Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner (NM/WHNP), and Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner (WHNP). Upon graduation, students are eligible to sit for certification examinations in their specialty areas.
