The Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) program at the Hunter College School of Nursing currently offers three specialization tracks:

Admitted students without a prior master's degree in nursing from an accredited program complete 90 credits and 1130 supervised clinical hours.

Students with a prior master's degree in nursing may be eligible for advanced standing, based on an assessment of the student's prior graduate record. Up to 42 credits for master's courses completed with a grade of 'B' or better, including relevant clinical hours completed for the master's degree, may be counted toward the 90 credits required for the DNP degree. DNP Capstone courses require a total of 500 clinical practicum hours.
