The U.S. Department of Education requires that all higher education institutions advise students as to whether their curriculum provides them with the eligibility to apply for a professional license and/or certification in the state for which they plan to practice.

As such, please review UNC Greensboro’s status by state for the Doctor of Nursing Practice program, post-baccalaureate adult-gerontological primary care nurse practitioner concentration. You should note whether the program either “meets”, “does not meet”, or if there “has not been a determination” of the program’s status in the state for which you plan to practice. You should contact the program’s support staff at ydeaves@uncg.edu with any questions regarding this data.
