the ana cannot agree on standards and does not accredit any doctoral programs, i believe the information you received or was told in incorrect.mikemike, you're right. i stand corrected. it's the aacn, not the ana that's stated that the dnp degree will be required for advanced practice nursing by 2015. there's an aricle that talks about the change on nurseweek.com if anyone's interested. :)

I live in Ohio and I would be interested in pursuing that degree as well, but I havent seen any of them in my state either.
There is a clinical doctorate program at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland!
BSN-PhD programs are coming up everywhere. In Ohio, we have one at Ohio State and Case Western. I am graduating with a BSN in 2006 and I am planning on taking this route for a PhD. I'm really interested in nursing research and teaching. Anyone else considering one of these programs?
As for the AANC requiring a doctorate degree for all nurse practitioners by 2015, it is a position statement. It's very doubtful it will actually be implemented by 2015. Remember, we cannot even agree on an entry level degree for nursing practice!

Looking at most of these programs - they are STILL more management and leadership or academic in focus than I would like to see a clinical Doctorate be.

I think that's the point of the DrNP, as opposed to the Doctor of Nursing Science. All the NPs who graduated from the pilot program at Columbia are full-time practicing NPs, some of whom are also on faculty here.
