To be eligible for the master’s entry to nursing practice program,
students must hold a bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited

The admission committee reserves the right to request any additional materials they deem necessary to ensure an accurate review of an application.
students (those who were educated outside of the U.S. and/or require an
F1 visa) must take additional steps to be considered for admission.

All prerequisite courses must include labs and have been completed within the last ten years with a grade of 'C' or better. Pass/Fail grades will not be accepted.

Applicants to the MENP program have the option of applying to the program through NursingCAS.

NursingCAS also verifies your academic credentials on behalf of DePaul. Students applying through NursingCAS should submit their application 2-6 weeks in advance of the deadlines listed (depending upon the term), as it can take NursingCAS several weeks to verify your application and we do not review unverified NursingCAS applications.
