Early Entry DNP

Students in the traditional, accelerated bachelor of science degree in nursing (ABSN) or in the RN-BS program may apply to the DNP program in the last semester of their undergraduate studies. Undergraduate students may take up to three of the graduate nursing courses (Advanced Pharmacology, Advanced Health Assessment, and Advanced Pathophysiology) allowing them to transfer these credits toward their DNP degree requirements; thereby ensuring a continuous progression from the undergraduate into the DNP program as long as the grades are at least a B or better in these courses.

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 (ABSN) 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).

Any undergraduate student who wishes to apply to the DNP program should meet with their Center for Academic, Resources, Engagement and Services (CARES) adviser along with the DNP program director to seek advisement and to coordinate classes.
