American Sentinel is a for-profit Institution that offers many online healthcare-focused degrees and certificates in nursing and management. In this online MSN-to-DNP program, students can choose from concentrations in educational leadership, executive leadership, informatics leadership, and professional leadership. All courses, such as health statistics, health services research, and principles of finance, are completed online. The only in-person obligations are a four-day residency requirement in Aurora, Colorado, and 1,000 clinical hours at an approved healthcare location.
American Sentinel subscribes to a rolling admissions policy and reviews applications throughout the calendar year. Prospective students must submit a resume, personal essay, and proof of at least one year of employment at a healthcare facility. Before applying, DNP seekers must secure a location or facility to complete their required onsite clinical hours. Most students who enter with an MSN finish this program in 28 months. Online students have access to educational resources such as 24/7 tutorial services, a writing help center, and a virtual library.
