Note on licensure:
The Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) Core Program and DNP Executive Leadership specialization are not licensure programs and will not prepare students as nurse practitioners.
Note on licensure:
Walden’s DNP nurse practitioner specializations are designed to academically prepare graduates with an active registered nurse (RN) license to practice in the U.S. as nurse practitioners. However, each state has its own academic preparation and authority to practice requirements and issues its own license for an RN to be permitted to practice as a nurse practitioner in that state.

Walden currently cannot enroll residents of the following states/districts into any DNP Nurse Practitioner specializations: Arizona, District of Columbia, Kansas, Louisiana, Maryland, Nevada, New York, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Tennessee, Utah, Washington, Wisconsin and Wyoming.
