is nurse practitioner still going to be with a masters degree or is it changing to PH.D

It's supposed to be changing over not to a PhD but to a DNP, the Doctorate of Nursing Practice, a terminal clinical doctorate, supposedly by 2015 or so. I'd be surprised if all the schools that offer masters degrees for APNs were able to switch over by then, though. My own dept's having issues getting the University administration on board with offering a doctoral degree.
