The increasing complexity of healthcare systems is driving changes in the academic preparation of nurse leaders. The number of doctorate of nursing practice programs has increased. Leaders in the Council on Graduate Education for Administration in Nursing (CGEAN) were interested in learning how graduate nursing leadership programs have responded.
