The DNP requires a total of 896 hours of residency related to the student's cognate area. These experiences will include basic and complex advanced nursing practice. This is in addition to the 630 hours of clinical preceptorship from the MS/ANP degree.
These residency hours break down as follows: two 192-hour cognate residencies, two 192-hour DNP practice enquiry project residencies, and one 128-hour health policy residency.
DNP students are required to keep a residency journal for each residency in the format outlined below. These are to be turned in to their graduate committee chair upon completion of each residency.
