Doctor of Nursing Practice and Post-Graduate Certificate Programs Re-Accredited for 10 years

The Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) has re-accredited the Seattle University College of Nursing Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) and Post-Graduate Certificate (PGC) ARNP programs for 10 years, extending their accreditation to December 31, 2030.

“We are ecstatic to have received such wonderful news about our DNP and PGC programs on the same day (actually within 30 minutes of each other) that we learned of the appointment President-Elect Eduardo M. Peñalver.”

The DNP program at Seattle University prepares nurses to lead and transform care systems from a foundation of Jesuit values and social justice. Since it began in 2012, the program has grown from 4 students to 324 with a total of 59 graduates.

Seattle University College of Nursing has long offered opportunities for those new to nursing and for professional nurses to expand their scope of practice. Study options at the College of Nursing include a full complement of advanced practice specialties, including DNP and PGC programs for Adult-Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner, Adult-Gerontology Primary Care Nurse Practitioner, Family Nurse Practitioner, Family Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner, and Nurse-Midwifery.

The baccalaureate degree program in nursing/master's degree program in nursing/Doctor of Nursing Practice program and post-graduate APRN certificate program at Seattle University are accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (http://www.ccneaccreditation.org).
