DNP Executive Format & Cohorts

Designed With You In Mind

The Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing offers the post-master's DNP program in an executive format. Three of our courses are offered online, the others are taught on campus as five eight-hour day intensive classes during three sessions (January, May and August), or off site in partnership with other institutions. 

How Do I Join or Start in a Cohort?

A cohort is a group of 10-20 students that start the DNP program at the same time. Four courses are taught at the cohort site, depending on state requirements, and the remainder are provided in the intensive sessions on the Case Western Reserve University campus in Cleveland, Ohio.

Cohorts have been launched in partnership with several academic institutions and hospitals. Below is a list of current or in-progress sites:

  • New Jersey
  • Washington, D.C., Virginia, Maryland
  • California
  • Florida 
  • Hawaii
  • New Hampshire
  • Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates
