  • Assess regulatory and/or legislative frameworks that shape practice authority, reimbursement, and/or academic authority, and identify implications of these frameworks for implementation of the DNP program.
  • Identify actual and/or potential challenges and opportunities inherent in the above assessments, and make specific recommendations regarding how to address these in the process of achieving the 2015 timeline goal.
  • Map potential interface and/or partnerships that can be created to assist existing undergraduate and graduate nursing programs to participate in implementation of the goal.
  • Develop recommendations in response to all of the preceding that detail actions and timelines for accomplishment, with specific focus on the recommended role for AACN in facilitating the implementation process.
