How long does it take to complete the program?
The course of study as a full-time student is 5 semesters which includes one summer. Students can choose to do part-time study which may be completed over 7 semesters which includes one summer session.
Are all applicants invited for interviews?
All submitted applications are reviewed by our admissions committee. All aspects of the application are thoroughly evaluated by the committee, including GPA, clinical experience, reference letters, and the personal statement. Interview offers are extended to those applicants the committee feels are most qualified.
What can I expect during the interview?
Your interview may be done either by telephone or you may come to campus. On-campus interviews are preferred to give the committee and applicant face-to-face time for questions. The faculty will ask questions about your nursing experience, your goals, and other information to learn something about you. It will last about 20-30 minutes depending on how many questions you may have.
Will I have to travel to campus during the program?
Yes. The courses for the Adult-Gerontology Primary Care NP track are all offered on line through various means of distance delivery; however students are required to come to campus four times during their program.
Will I need to have a computer for this program?
Yes, you will need access to a computer for the entire on-line curriculum. Please refer to Technical Requirements page for details.
Where will I do my clinical practicum?
Students will work with the track director, graduate clinical placement coordinator and appropriate agency contacts in order to secure clinical practicum placements. While every effort is made to find clinical sites near home towns, this is not always possible and travel may be required in order to complete clinical requirements.
What is the anticipated cost for this program?
Online courses are offered to all students, regardless of where they live, at the "in state" tuition rate. Please refer the UND Online & Distance Education website. This shows the tuition and fees for graduate students in the Adult-Gerontology Nursing track. In addition, students are charged a $500.00 Nursing Program Fee per semester for a full time student. This fee is prorated for part time students ($41.67 per credit).
Am I able to transfer credits?
Graduate work is considered for transfer only on an individual basis and only after the student has completed satisfactory work in residence at UND. The transfer credits are approved by the student's advisory committee and the Dean of the School of Graduate Studies, up to one-fourth of the credit hours required for the Master's Degree may be considered for transfer. Courses more than seven years old cannot be transferred. See graduate student handbook for further information.
