Over the past four years, the focus of our Academic Progression in Nursing (APIN) program has been on recommendation that 80% of the nursing workforce be BSN prepared or higher by 2020. This recommendation was established by the Institute of Medicine (2010) report, The Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health, which recommends .   To learn more about the importance of a BSN watch our video The Pursuit of a BSN.

Academic-Practice partnerships are crucial to many of the Center's programs.  Shortly after The Future of Nursing report was released, an AACN-AONE Task Force on Academic-Practice Partnerships released a list of Guiding Principles.  To learn more about the foundation of many of the Center's efforts read Guiding Principles to Academic-Practice Partnerships.
