Technology is integrated into the fabric of health care and will most likely become increasingly part of the core fiber. The American Organization of Nurse Executives (AONE) recognizes the significant role technology will play in our future. In support, AONE leadership has developed several tools to assist nurse leaders in incorporating technology into their work.
In 2002, the National Organization of Nurse Practitioner Faculty [NONPF] began discussions around two emerging issues related to nurse practitioner education: ?credit creep? (the increased credit requirements for master's programs and the increased clinical hour requirements for credentialing) and the migration by other clinical disciplines to clinical doctorate education (PharmD, AuD, DPT).
The following principles are intended to guide the nurse leader in achieving a diverse workforce by becoming an advocate for resources to implement and support a diversity program, encouraging a commitment to education, and leading diversity research initiatives that are based on performance improvement outcomes.
