I just saw a post by someone who is concerned about graduating in Fall 2014 from an NP school (Masters) and not being able to sit for boards in spring of 2015 because of the new switch to doctoral requirements for NPs. Is this possible? I too will be graduating in late 2014 with a masters degree. My assumption is that since I started my program before the 2015 doctoral deadline I will be able to sit for my boards even if it ends up that I take them in 2015.
I just graduated this summer and towards the end my instructors were telling us that they were adding certain amounts of geriatric information to the existing curriculum to meet the new requirements.
I'm assuming this won't affect re-certification for those of us with certifications that will be retired?

I, too, graduate in 2013 but from a Family Psych NP. Do you know what the test is changing from in August 2013? Thanks.
Thanks Mr. juan de la cruz for your post. I have been searching for the answer to the question as to how the certification exam is going to change come August 2013. I am trying to take my test before then. I did a Family program, but I do not feel as though the Gero population was heavily covered.
