The Graduate Entry Pathway (GEP) is for individuals with a bachelor's degree in a field other than nursing, leading first to Registered Nurse (RN) licensure, then to either an Doctor of Nursing Practice (nurse practitioner), PhD in Nursing (nurse scientist).

Our GEP pathway RN preparation is located in a state of the art learning and simulation community within an academic health science center and top-ranked medical school campus. Take a tour of the Interporfessional Center for Experiential Learning and Simulation (iCELS) HERE
