DNP-A Program Information

Housing and Meals

Students are responsible for their own housing and meals at assigned clinical site.

Financial Aid

Both loans and limited scholarships are available for students. Deadlines are early in the semester prior to entry and students are encouraged to contact the Graduate Financial Aid Advisor, TCU Box 297012, Fort Worth, TX 76129 as soon as possible. TCU is recognized by the Veterans’ Administration for financial assistance to eligible students. Stipends are currently available during Phase II at limited clinical sites.

A student withdrawing from TCU within a limited time frame is eligible for tuition refund. Deadlines are printed in the University calendar every semester, and can be found in the Graduate Bulletin at www.catalog.tcu.edu.

Technology

Students are required to have a laptop computer equipped with a camera. Students should have sufficient computer literacy to manipulate multiple types of files. Students will need a Pentium Class PC with Windows XP or later version, or a MAC with OS X v10.6 or later version. Students are required to have Microsoft Office (with PowerPoint, Word, and Excel, or MAC compatible version), an Internet connection (preferably broadband), and a printer.

Time Commitment

The student’s time commitment is approximately 64 hours during a seven-day week. This time commitment does not include study time. One hour of classroom time generates two hours or more of study time. The student should expect a rotating schedule during Phase II.

Transfer Credit

Neither transfer credit hours nor prior work experience are accepted to satisfy degree requirements.

Employment

DNP-Anesthesia students are encouraged to work during the first 8 months of the program. Student employment is strongly discouraged during the last 28 months of the DNP-A program. Students gain more from their academic and clinical experiences without the additional burden of work commitments. If student employment is absolutely necessary, the student must notify the Director in writing of the position and hours, documenting that there is no conflict in time between their job and program responsibilities. Students may not be employed to practice anesthesia. Clinical students may not work the shift prior to clinical time during Phase II.
