Post Masters DNP is a Doctor of Nursing Practice degree which is given to students who already completed an advanced nursing degrees. The Post Masters DNP is for CRNA graduates with a Masters in Nursing degree.
Who can qualify for a Post Masters DNP?
In order to qualify for the Post Masters DNP, you must have received a Masters in Nursing (MSN) from an institution approved by COA in an Advanced Practice Registered Nurse (APRN) program. APRN programs include Nurse Practitioners, Clinical Nurse Specialists, Certified Nurse-Midwives, and Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists. Therefore, if you received a masters in a non-healthcare related field, you would not qualify for the DNP. In addition, if you received a generalist degree or nursing education degree you also do not qualify for admission into a Post Masters program.
All post masters DNP programs do not require a GRE.
Is a DNP required to be a CRNA?
A DNP is not required to be a CRNA. In fact, until 2025 all CRNA students who graduate with a Master’s degree (24-month CRNA programs) are automatically grand fathered and become Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists without getting a DNP.
Although there are 124 CRNA Schools that have been approved by the Council on Accreditation of Nurse Anesthesia Educational Programs, there are only 49 Post Masters DNP CRNA Schools.
