On-Campus Requirements

The post-master’s DNP program options require you to complete two on-campus components. You will be responsible for planning and paying for your own travel, transportation and accommodations.  

New Student Orientation

We host a virtual orientation session the summer before your first semester of study, prior to beginning the program. Orientation gives you an opportunity to connect with your peers, as well as faculty and staff at GW Nursing.

Project Preparation

You will attend a virtual program between your first and second years designed to prepare you for your clinical research project.

Project Presentation

At the end of your third year, you will present your work in an open forum to GW Nursing faculty and your peers. This two- to three-day experience is scheduled during graduation activities, which occur in mid- to late May, so you can plan to attend both.
