    My specialty (nurse midwifery) has come out against the DNP as an entry to practice, so I am very curious to see how this plays out in the next 10 years. (disclaimer- I am a RN/CPM and not yet a CNM. but I will be in a few years!)

    UMDNJ is updating their psych to Family. It's not eliminated.
    I am currently a student there and was informed by my track coordinator that current students had to make the decision to graduate by next August with the Adult psych or take additional classes to complete the family psych. This choice was only being offered to current students as we were informed that going forward the program would only be offered as DNP with a family focus. Rutgers has also decided to only offer DNP or post-MSN starting in the fall.

    My school started their BSN-DNP program and my class was supposed to be the last MSN tract. Well since then they have started two more MSN tracks after I was admitted and I will be graduating this August! Go figure!

    My school converted to the DNP, but only in acute care. I think all of U of M(Michigan's) is DNP as well. I wouldn't worry about it....honestly! I'm almost done with my BSN to DNP, ad I'll be surprised if this actually becomes a requirement any time soon..

    I believe this is a goal. How long have they talked about BSN being entry level for RNs? My state has directly on the Board of Nursing website that there is not plan for that requirement. Of course universities want this--$$$!
