Notice: Nurse Practitioner Programs | MEPN - Master's Entry Program in Nursing

Nurse Practitioner Program Notification

Note: We are transitioning the current MS program and the Post-Graduate Certificate Program, NP track, to a doctor of nursing practice (DNP) degree program.

The anticipated opening of admission is fall 2017 for fall 2018 entry, pending approvals. UCI Nursing Science is proposing two DNP tracks:

Track 1 is designed for students who have a BS or MS degree in nursing and seek a terminal practice-focused nursing degree and certification as a nurse practitioner (NP role), and can be completed in 3 years.

Track 2 is designed for students who have a MS degree in nursing and seek a terminal practice-focused nursing degree without certification as a nurse practitioner (no NP role), and can be completed in 2 years.

MS and Post-Graduate NP track applications are no longer being accepted.
