The past ten years have seen a change in nursing education unprecedented in the history of the profession. A new compendium, Nursing Education and the Decade of Change: Strategies to Meet America’s Health Needs, reports on this transformation and what it will take to build on that progress.

Catalysts for the great change are the Academic Progression in Nursing (APIN) program, the State Implementation Program (SIP), and AARP’s Center to Champion Nursing in America, all initiatives of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. CCNA is also an initiative of AARP Foundation and AARP. Read Nursing Education to understand the five education models that are easing the way for more nurses to advance their education and thereby continue to improve America’s health, and learn how you can keep this important work moving forward.
