Frequently Asked Questions
Will I have to travel to campus during the program?
All courses are online. However, we do require that students come to campus for orientation purposes at the beginning of your first fall semester. The orientation is approximately 2-3 days long. This will be discussed with you when you are admitted to the track.
What is the anticipated cost for this program?
Please refer to UND Tuition and Fees for rates. In addition, students are charged a $500.00 Nursing Program Fee per semester and $40.00 per credit for on-line courses.
Am I able to transfer credits?
Students may transfer in up to one fourth of the credit hours required for the degree they are working towards. The student must have earned a grade of B or better and the work must be less than seven years old at the time the UND degree is awarded. The transfer credits must be approved by the student's advisory committee and the Dean of the School of Graduate Studies.
Who do I contact for further information?
Call us toll free at 1.800.CALL.UND (1.800.225.5863). Calls can be transferred to the APHN Track. You may also call us directly by the calling the Program Director at 701.777.4559 or the Program Secretary (701.777.4508).
How many letters of recommendation are required?
Three letters of recommendation are required for admission to the graduate school. At least one of these letters of recommendation should be from your current, direct supervisor. We also recommend that at least one of your letters is from a Nurse with a masters degree or higher.
Can I apply if I have not taken a statistics course?
We can admit students who have not yet met that requirement. However, you would be admitted "provisionally"-- meaning you would be given a time frame (usually 1 semester) in which you would need to complete a stats course. UND offers several statistics courses online: Soc 326 Sociological Statistics; Psych 241 Intro to Statistics; and Econ 210 Intro to Business & Econ Statistics. You may also transfer in a statistics course from another accredited college.
Where can I do my practicum?
We will work with you to identify a qualified agency and preceptor as close to your home community as possible for your clinical experiences. A contract agreement with the practicum agency must be obtained prior to the beginning of the practicum experience. To allow sufficient time to secure agency contracts, students are required to identify a desired agency at least one semester prior to the start of practicum. This includes providing a contact name and number at the agency and also the names of any potential preceptors for the practicum experience. All agency placements must be approved by the UND practicum coordinator.
