Can anyone tell me what the timeline is for when MSN degrees will be phased out and DNP will be required to become nurse practitioners? I'm considering NP school and am afraid that by the time I finish the program, they'll be adding a longer list of requirements or that I'll have to start over again into the DNP program. I heard rumors it may be around 2012 but have not found a reliable source to confirm this.

Here is the thread on the DNP.
Doctoral degree to become an NP???
Right now, 2012 is the only date available.
