Application Process

Thank you for your interest in this UNC graduate program! You will complete the UNC Graduate School application and then submit additional materials.

Step 1 – Apply

Apply to the UNC Graduate School (the bullets below may help you as you complete the application).

  • On the application, choose the following program:

    • Nursing D.N.P. - Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) Emphasis (Post Bachelor's) (Extended Campus)

  • Request 3 academic or professional letters of recommendation from those who can attest to your academic potential and abilities. You will be asked to supply information for your recommenders in the application.

  • If you are unable to complete your application in one session, you can log back in to your application later to complete it. The application fee process will appear once you submit your application.

Step 2 – Submit Transcripts & Supplemental Items

You will then continue in the system (or log into the Admissions Portal) to complete the following:

  • All applicants will need to request one official transcript from each regionally accredited college or university where a bachelor's degree or higher was earned (or is in progress). Some applicants may need to provide additional transcripts. Situations that require this are listed on the Graduate School website (choose Domestic or International). Directions for having your official transcript(s) sent to UNC are listed in the Application Portal.

  • Personal Statement of future goals/interest in nursing (two page maximum, 12 point font, one inch paper margins).

  • Current vita or resume.

  • Copy of current, unencumbered RN license (verification printout or link required).

  • Example of scholarly work or project – examples of this work include but are not limited to: professional research-based paper, senior-level project, evidence-based practice proposal, literature review, scholarly publication or presentation.

  • The application portal will also show you which of your recommendations have been completed.

  • GRE scores are NOT required for this program.

Once you apply to the UNC Graduate School and your application packet is complete, your application will be reviewed by the graduate school then sent to the faculty/program for an admission decision. The timing of the admission decision depends on each individual program’s deadline and review process.
