The previous CGEAN Perspectives column compared the Baccalaureate Essentials document with American Nurses Credentialing Center® (ANCC®) and American Organization of Nurse Executives® (AONE®) certification examination content for nurse managers and concluded that the baccalaureate curriculum lacks the depth of content needed for today’s frontline nurse leaders. This article continues the discussion by comparing the Master’s Essentials document with ANCC and AONE nurse manager-level certification content to evaluate if a master’s graduate education prepares nurses for the competencies of these management roles.
