This was sent to me from the DNP program at UF. I have posted this information for any who may be interested in taking your NP to the next level. I will be posting another entry in reference to the DNP at a later date. Enjoy!

After much work we will able to offer the Doctorate of Nursing Practice (DNP) at UF beginning Fall 2006 for those students who are seeking a post-master's.

The Nursing courses will be offered in Gainesville and Jacksonville. Some courses may be web-based but at this time we do not which courses.

1. A minimum score of 500 on each of the verbal and quantitative sections of the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) General Test.
2. Completion of the GRE Analytical Writing Measure.
3. Current licensure (or eligibility) in the state of Florida.
4. A master's degree in nursing from a nationally accredited program.
