    There is nothing set in stone. The story is they are looking at it in 2015...looking at maybe doing it down the road. I'm not even worrying about it. I don't think it will happen anytime soon.

    It's possible depending on how long it is before you start. However, as of now DNP by 2015 is only a recommendation, similar to the BSN recommendation of yesteryear.
