Living expenses

You are responsible for your living accommodations and transportation.

Housing is provided during the senior off-campus rotation.

Health insurance

Students are offered low-cost comprehensive medical insurance, including a prescription drug plan, as well as dental and vision insurance.

Outside work

Outside employment during the program is possible, although the rigorous nature of the program makes working more than a supplemental position challenging. Employment as a nurse anesthetist while a student in our program is forbidden.

Financial aid

Mayo Clinic School of Health Sciences offers financial incentives for students to participate in some of its health sciences education programs. Scholarships, grants, and low-interest loans may be available for those who demonstrate financial need.

The Office of Student Financial Aid and Registrar can provide more details about financial aid or incentives offered for the DNAP Program.
