Pick the DNP option that best fits your career goals. The chart below describes online availability by track. You’ll also find definitions of the terms online, online with course immersions, and hybrid as well as our special online local option.

Many tracks offer an online DNP with online coursework and clinicals near you; most include onsite immersions that help students build close relationships with Johns Hopkins’ internationally acclaimed faculty and allow students to train in the simulation center at the school of nursing, and for select opportunities, with interprofessional teams in the simulation center at Johns Hopkins Medicine.

In most tracks students can complete clinicals where they are, but a few tracks require students to complete clinicals in the Baltimore region. Students in any track can choose to relocate to Baltimore for the online local experience.

Online Local

Immerse yourself in the Johns Hopkins community in Baltimore and work side by side with faculty who are world-renowned experts in your area of interest. Students whose track is online with immersions can relocate to Baltimore if they choose. Students will complete coursework online and work with faculty to set up clinical learning experiences within the Johns Hopkins network of partners. This includes settings such as Henderson Hopkins (a JHU community partnership school), the House of Ruth (a Baltimore domestic violence center), or in a Johns Hopkins Health System hospital or practice.

Online with Onsite Course Immersions:

All coursework is completed online and clinicals are completed in the student’s local geographical region. Students are required to come to campus for seven onsite immersions that include course competency assessments, standardized clinicals, leadership development opportunities, and networking with JHSON faculty and cohort members.


Many courses are delivered online and some may have face-to-face immersion. Other courses are completely onsite. Clinicals must be completed in the Baltimore region.
