UNCG DNP Nurse Anesthesia will start accepting applications May 1, 2018 for Fall 2019 admission.

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

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, 2018, for the 2019 academic year. The application fee for UNCG Graduate School is $65.00.  You must be complete with the process of application to The Graduate School at UNCG before you can apply to the DNP program. Once that is completed, you will receive an email from UNCG with a link to our website. This link will connect you to ApplicantStack where you will create an account by pressing the “apply” button. The DNP Nurse Anesthesia application fee is $80.00 and must be paid at that time. 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 us online. While the DNP program does not have a separate “application”, we do have requirements for admission which are detailed under the Prospective Students link above.

The application deadline is October 31, 2018. 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 2018.

The 2018 dates are scheduled for: Nov 6/8, Nov 13/15, with the final interview dates TBD.  Prerequisites for admission to UNCG’s Graduate School can be found on their website: UNCG Graduate School of Nursing​.

​Official transcripts (paper or electronic) from all colleges and universities (whether a degree was awarded or not) must be submitted directly to the DNP Nurse Anesthesia Program and UNCG for an application to be considered eligible. Official transcripts in paper form should be mailed to:

  1. University of North Carolina Greensboro
    Union Square Campus, Office 390L
    Attn:  BJ Coats, 124 East Gate City Blvd, Greensboro, NC 27406
  2. Graduate Admissions
    The Graduate School
    University of North Carolina at Greensboro
    241 Mossman Building
    1202 Spring Garden Street
    Greensboro, NC 27412​

Electronic transcripts may be sent to BJCoats@uncg.edu.

An official GRE score report must be sent to UNCG school code 3733. 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 DNP Nurse Anesthesia program and UNCG 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 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, 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 at both institutions.

For questions regarding the application process, please email Betty Coats at BJCoats@uncg.edu.

NOTE: When you arrive, via the link sent from UNCG, at the Application Fee payment button page, you MUST pay your application fee before your application will be considered.​
