Duke University School of Nursing MSN HIV Specialty
The HIV Specialty is open to newly enrolled and currently enrolled students in the Adult-Gerontology Nurse Practitioner, Family Nurse Practitioner or Women's Health Nurse Practitioner majors in the Duke MSN Program. It is also available to students with the same majors who are enrolled in the Duke DNP Program. The distance-based specialty curriculum includes eight credit hours of foundational and clinical courses that address the prevention, care, and treatment of adults living with HIV, with a strong focus on the unique primary care and psychosocial needs of this population. Students in the specialty complete a 168-hour clinical practicum under the mentorship of an experienced HIV primary care clinician. The eight-credit HIV Specialty is also open as a non-degree option for licensed clinicians who wish to advance their knowledge and expertise in how to care for this unique patient population. Non-degree students earn an HIV Specialty Certificate.
