The Nursing program at University of Hawaii at Manoa is designed for registered nurses who seek to expand their knowledge and clinical expertise to assume advanced practice and leadership nursing roles.


We have transitioned the nurse practitioner specialty offering from the master’s to the Doctorate in Nursing Practice (DNP) to align with the national direction of the profession. Students interested in these specialties should pursue the school’s DNP program. 

UH Manoa Nursing will continue to provide nurse practitioner and nursing executive leadership master's-level courses until all current students have completed their program.
