    1. Making RoomFor‘Dr. Nurse’ Sarah Ralston Jon Salontay Dan Schifer Colin Schroeder

    2. Nursing Overview • RN – Registered Nurse • Primarily in hospitals or doctor offices. • Required to take the NCLEX-RN to practice • BSN – Bachelor’s or Associate’s Degree • Also can sit for the NCLEX-RN, but has an opportunity for more professional roles in the hospitals

    3. Nursing Overview • NP – Master’s Degree • Provide similar services to family physicians but do not have the same licensing and abilities • DNP (or DrPN) – Doctorate • Provides a greater amount of background and higher level of training for work in hospitals and practices • Differs from the DNSc, which is a more clincal, education-based doctorate

    4. Doctorate Nursing Practitioner • Over 200 universities plan to establish program • 2 year program + 1 year residency • Program Enrollment • 1874 students (Today) • 862 students (2006)

    5. New Certification • DNP Certification Exam • New for Fall 2008 • Based on the physicians test to qualify for medical license • DNP exam will be narrower in scope including organ systems and range of medical disciplines • Possible 2015 Requirement • Doctoral degree for all advanced nurses • Including nurse practitioners

    6. Nursing or Teaching Shortage? • 40,285 qualified bachelor and graduate nursing students rejected in 2007 • Insufficient number of faculty • According to the American Association of Colleges of Nursing

    7. Nursing In Demand • More than 125,000 NPs in the U.S. • 1 million new or replacement nurses by 2016 • According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics • Shortage of 85,000 – 200,000 by 2020

    8. Program Opinions • In Favor: • DNPs and NPs are often more willing to practice in areas that physicians are not • Not enough physicians to care for patients with increasingly complex care needs • DNPs receive higher income and more predictable hours, which may encourage the program

    9. Program Opinions • Against: • Could confuse patients and jeopardize care • Might raise bar too high for profession • Possibility for a requirement of costly extended education

    10. Financial Benefits • Registered Nurse • Average $60,970/year • Nurse Practitioner • Average $87,400/year • Doctor of Nursing • Average $92,255 to $100,000+/year
