Nurse Training and Online Resources
In 2004, nursing schools accredited by the AACN voted to move the current level of preparation necessary for advanced nursing practice from the master’s degree to the doctorate-level by 2015. This decision led to a dramatic rise in the number of students interested in Doctor of Nursing Practice programs, which is why we decided to create a comprehensive guide to the topic - http://www.dnpprograms.com.
We know there's a lot for students to consider when researching DNP programs, and our goal is to simplify what is often a confusing process.
