Abstract

The Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health report recommended that 80% of the workforce hold a BSN or higher degree by the year 2020. This raises issue for the nursing education system as to how best to provide seamless academic progression for students. The authors discuss how faculty at 1 school of nursing worked with a multidisciplinary team to devise educationally sound policies that gave credit for coursework completed at associate degree nursing programs toward a BSN degree more quickly.
