A caring approach to the most caring of professions.
Whether you are a practicing nurse or a college graduate looking to pursue nursing as a new career, DePaul offers the right degree program—and a caring, personal approach—to help you achieve your goals.
DePaul’s School of Nursing has a solid national reputation, the result of a 70-year tradition of innovation in graduate nursing programs. Equally important is the learning atmosphere.
Students tell us it’s different here. Caring and collaborative. Open and welcoming. You’ll get to know your professors, and they’ll make it a priority to get to know you. You’ll benefit from the opportunity to train in a variety of diverse clinical sites throughout the Chicago area.
The School of Nursing offers three distinct graduate degree programs:
Master’s Entry to Nursing Practice (MENP)
An accelerated MS degree for bachelor’s degree holders in another field who want to become nurses.
RN to MS in Nursing (MS)
For registered nurses looking to advance to leadership positions in nursing administration or nursing education.
Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP)
An advanced nursing practice degree for working nurses, available in three tracks—family nurse practitioner, adult-gerontological nurse practitioner and nurse anesthesia—with multiple entry points to accommodate different credential levels.
