Abstract

Nurse executives should be familiar with postgraduate nurse practitioner training programs. Supplemental training opportunities are gaining popularity across the country and are primarily funded by employers interested in recruiting and retaining qualified healthcare professionals. There is considerable variability in program learning objectives, clinical content, and titles used to describe participants' roles. This article offers program descriptions, associated costs, and a call for evidence of their impact on a growing constituent of the healthcare workforce.
