CSU Doctor of Nursing Practice Degree Programs
Fall 2012 marked the beginning of nursing doctoral studies at the California State University system, with the launch of two CSU post-master's Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) degree programs. Designed to prepare nurses for advanced practice and to educate future nursing faculty, the CSU Fresno-San José State and CSU Fullerton-Long Beach-Los Angeles consortium-based programs graduated 114 individuals in their first two cohorts of students. Students participate in a rigorous, five-semester academic program of study.

Applications for the 2017-18 academic year will be accepted beginning in October 2016. For additional information, course listings, and to apply, visit the degree programs' websites:
