The BSN to DNP courses will use virtual meetings for the ‘Synchronous Meeting Requirements.’  Students must have a computer with Internet access that supports video streaming. Each student will be required to attend the virtual meetings according to their study plan.   Each ‘on campus’ course will be approximately 2-3 days dedicated to class time, presentations, student projects, DNP project, and meetings with faculty. Student attendance for each synchronous meeting is mandated as a requirement of the BSN to DNP program curriculum. Failure to attend the entire on-campus activities will result in course failure and the inability to progress to subsequent courses until the ‘on-campus’ activities are completed when next offered.  Actual physical presence in not a requirement for the BSN to DNP course.  

Time Frames for Synchronous Meeting Activities.  Use the USI Academic Calendar for referencing actual dates.
