BECOME A NURSE PRACTITIONER PREPARED FOR FUTURE LEADERSHIP OPPORTUNITIES.

Hawai‘i Pacific University’s 100% online BSN-DNP program has been designed to help passionate registered nurses prepare for advance practice nursing while earning a terminal degree in as few as 34 to 44 months.*

With a Doctor of Nursing Practice degree from HPU, you can provide high-quality care as a nurse practitioner, and when you’re ready, transition into a leadership or academic role — without returning to school or earning another degree. Plus, as an HPU student, you’ll learn to deliver transcultural care rooted in your patients’ unique culture, socioeconomic background, and more.

*Full-time students take 34 months and part-time students take 44 months to complete the program.

Note: Upon completion of our BSN to DNP program, the DNP degree will be awarded. This program does not lead to the MSN degree.
