About

The Doctor of Nursing Practice - Adult or Gerontology Nurse Practitioner Emphasis will soon be the required degree for clinically practicing APRNs, CNMs, and nursing leaders in health care organizations.

Overview

The American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) has mandated that the current level of preparation necessary for advanced nursing practice be moved from the master’s degree to the doctorate level by the year 2015.

Learning outcomes

The Institute of Medicine’s 2002 report on Health Professions Education recommended strategies for restructuring all clinical education in the health professions to be consistent with the principles of 21st century health systems. These recommendations stressed that health science students and all working professionals develop and maintain proficiency in 5 core areas: delivering patient-centered care, working as part of interdisciplinary teams, practicing evidence-based medicine, focusing on quality improvement, and using information technology.
