UNCG DNP Nurse Anesthesia will start accepting applications May 1, 2019 for Fall 2020 admission.

UNCG’s DNP Nurse Anesthesia application process is completed through the Graduate School at The University of North Carolina Greensboro.

Apply online via The Graduate School website (Apply Now​) to start the process. The UNCG deadline for applications to attend the DNP Program is Oct 1, 2019, for the 2020-2021 academic year. The application fee for UNCG Graduate School is $65.00.  Your application is your responsibility and email is an integral source of communication with the DNP Nurse Anesthesia program. Please check your email at least daily. Also, two evaluation forms are sent automatically when you create your account. The evaluations are sent via email to the individuals listed as your Immediate Supervisor and a Professional Colleague. They will receive them and follow a link included in the email to complete and submit back to the graduate school.  While the DNP program does not have a separate “application”, we do have requirements for admission which are included in the Graduate School application and detailed under the Prospective Students link above.

The application deadline is October 1, 2019. If an applicant is qualified for an interview, they will be contacted to schedule it as soon as their application is complete to the DNP Nurse Anesthesia Program. Please remember, all applications are reviewed carefully and not all applicants will qualify for an interview.

If you are selected for an interview, the interview dates will start the second week of November 2019.

The 2019 dates are TBD.  Prerequisites for admission to UNCG’s Graduate School can be found on their website: UNCG Graduate School of Nursing​.

An official GRE score report must be sent to UNCG school code 5913. This is required for the DNP program  regardless of GPA (unless you have an MSN in which case it is waived for admission to the DNP program).

If you are currently enrolled in course work to meet prerequisites, verification of completion must be submitted to the Graduate School before an interview will be considered.

For all eligible applicants, personal interviews are required. The DNP Nurse Anesthesia Program will only interview applicants who meet prerequisites for admission​. The DNP Nurse Anesthesia Admissions Committee reviews the credentials of each applicant and an invitation for a personal interview may be extended to the qualified applicants. Submitting an application by the application deadline does not guarantee an interview. Specific dates for interviews are predetermined and interviews are only conducted on these dates. ​Following the interview dates, final admission decisions are made. Admission to the DNP Nurse Anesthesia program is for the beginning of the following Fall semester. Full-time participation in the program is required; therefore, students are urged to plan finances carefully to avoid the need for employment. It is very important to monitor the status of your application through your email.
