The Advanced Practice Nursing Immersion (APNI) program is a doctoral entry option available to well-qualified students who have completed an undergraduate degree in a non-nursing field. In 16-quarters of full-time study, APNI students can complete requirements for RN licensure and earn a DNP in an advanced practice role.
During the first year of study APNI students focus on pre-licensure coursework and preparation for Registered Nurse (RN) exams.
