Dual Degree in Nursing (DDN)

Dual Degree in Nursing (DDN)

The Dual Degree in Nursing program (DDN) at the University of Rochester combines the resources of the College and the School of Nursing. It allows incoming freshmen to combine their interests in nursing with a specific academic discipline offered at the College. These students exemplify diverse, passionate commitments to both areas of study.

In their first seven semesters, DDN students pursue a Bachelor of Arts or a Bachelor of Science degree at the College and complete the prerequisites for the School of Nursing. In their final three semesters, students pursue a Bachelor of Science in Nursing. Students will complete both degrees in four-and-a-half years.
