The Schools of Nursing at the University of Nevada in Las Vegas and in Reno offer a collaborative Doctor of Nursing Practice program that is accredited by the CCNE. The program is designed as a cohort, and up to 14 students are admitted to each school every year. Although all courses are delivered online, students are required to come to campus for a two-day orientation and one day each during two different semesters for their project proposal and project defense presentation. This is a post-master's DNP degree with a distinct track for APRNs and another for nurse administrators/executives. Full-time students can complete the program in five semesters. Pursuing the degree on a part-time basis can take up to eight semesters.
