I've read that the mandatory entry level for a nurse practitioner is the Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) degree. Is this information correct?
At this time the only APN specialty requiring a DNP is Nurse Anesthesia. It is a recommendation by NP organizations that the DNP be the entry level degree.
Many academic programs are voluntarily moving to the DNP as the entry level for becoming an APN. These programs are called BSN to DNP meaning you must
have a Bachelor of Science in Nursing to enter into the program.
