DNP Nurse Anesthesia Degree Requirements

All applicants to the DNP Nurse Anesthesia program must have earned a Baccalaureate degree in Nursing (BSN) or a Master's Degree in Nursing (MSN) from a regionally accredited college/university.

  • Regional accrediting organizations include HLCOpens in new window , MSCHEOpens in new window , NEASCOpens in new window , NWCCUOpens in new window , SACSOpens in new window and WASCOpens in new window . Regional accreditation is granted to the university, not the nursing program. To verify the accreditation of your baccalaureate and master's degree granting university/college(s), visit the institution's website and/or search for the school  on the regional accrediting organizations' websites.
  • National accreditation alone is not sufficient.

Foreign degrees: If you completed your Baccalaureate and/or Master's degree outside of the United States, to verify if you meet the degree requirements for admission to the program prior to applying, you must have it evaluated by a foreign transcript evaluation agency for equivalency to a Baccalaureate degree in the US, and for the conversion of your Grade Point Average (GPA) to a 4.0 scale.
