Plan of Study elements are aligned with the American Association of Colleges of Nursing Essentials of the Doctor of Nursing Practice and these elements are threaded throughout the curriculum. The program is a lock-step program, where each course is only offered once a year. Unsuccessful completion of any course may require waiting an academic year to retake the course.
