Estimated Costs

With online and seated, and full- or part-time options depending on your degree plan, we are one of the lowest cost programs in the nation but with the high quality you expect.

The post-master’s DNP can be completed for just over $9,000 for tuition and fees. The BSN to DNP can be completed by in-state students for less than $30,000 for tuition and fees.

This comes with the support of a faculty mentor in addition to your advisor, who you can contact at any point regardless of the course and school support staff.
