Welcome Post-Master's DNP
The faculty and staff of the Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing welcome you to the Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) program, Case Western Reserve University and Cleveland. We’ve compiled a number of resources to ease you into student life at Case Western Reserve.
First things first: Before you arrive on campus for your first intensive class, email your adviser to introduce yourself. Tell your adviser about yourself and your research interests, and see if you can make an appointment for when you are at Case Western Reserve.
Other things for your to-do list include:
- Pick up your CWRU ID card: You’ll need this to access certain labs and rooms within the school and to enter the building on weekends.
- Activate your network ID: You will need an active ID (firstname.lastname@example.org) to access the registrar, Blackboard, libraries, computer systems and your student email account.
- Download VPN to your home computer: This virtual network allows you to access the CWRU network from off campus.
Questions? We’d love to talk with you. Please contact one of our recruitment and retention specialists for more information.
