Brief Summary of ProposalOne course 8200:623 Adult/Gero Health Nursing Practicum 2 credits is being deleted and a new course 8200:631 Adult/Gero Health Nursing NP IV Practicum, 3 cr hrs is being added. This change will add 1 credit to the track which is necessary in order for NP students to acquire sufficient supervised practicum contact hours with patients/clients to sit for certification. This change is proposed to meet the national standards mandated in the Consensus Model for Advanced Practice Nursing: APRN Regulation: Licensure, Accreditation, Certification & Education (National Council of State Boards of Nursing, July 7, 2008). That document has set a deadline for requiring that all NP programs revise their single focus adult NP and gero NP programs into a dual focus adult/gero NP program. The national certification organizations will have their certification tests available in 2012. Classes entering the program fall 2011 will graduate May 2013. The faculty determined that this class would be the ideal time to make the changes mandatory.
