Early Entry DNP

Students in the traditional, accelerated, second-degree nursing program (ABS) and the RN-BS program may apply to the doctor of nursing practice (DNP) program in the last semester of their undergraduate studies. Acceptance ensures a continuous progression from the undergraduate into the DNP program. It also allows those students who take the 4-credit APN role courses to apply credits from these courses in the DNP program. Students should apply according to the normal process for the DNP program. For details see the DNP webpage on the Rutgers School of Nursing-Camden website.

Early entry students in the traditional and accelerated second-degree program (ABS) must pass the NCLEX and obtain RN licensure in the state of New Jersey prior to taking the first clinical course (58:705:660 Adult Gerontological Primary Care Theory I).

Undergraduate students who fully intend to apply for the DNP program may take special 4-credit advanced pharmacology, advanced pathophysiology, and advanced health assessment. It is important for students to seek advisement with both undergraduate advisers as well as the DNP track coordinators before taking these courses.
