Progress Report on the Transition to the DNP
In October 2013, the AACN Board of Directors commissioned the RAND Corporation to conduct a national study to assess the facilitators and barriers for schools transitioning their master’s level APRN programs to the DNP. The final report is due in July 2014.
In January 2014, the AACN Board created this task force to develop a white paper that clarifies the purpose of the DNP final scholarly product and the clinical learning expectations described in the DNP Essentials. The white paper is due in July 2015.
