Regulation and Academic Progression FAQs

A meeting was held at the offices of the National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN) in Chicago with Academic Progression in Nursing (APIN) and the Center to Champion Nursing in America (CCNA) on March 2, 2016,  to discuss regulation and academic progression in nursing. The objectives were to:

  • Affirm areas of mutual understanding.
  • Seek clarity on specific issues related to academic progression.
  • Identify how regulations related to academic progression are communicated.
  • Identify an appropriate dissemination strategy including an FAQ document and follow-up webinar.

The discussion included an overview of the issues raised by the APIN and State Implementation Program (SIP) grantees working on academic progression models nationally. The group developed a set of responses to frequently asked questions. See the document below.
