The National Organization of Nurse Practitioner Faculties has made the commitment to move entry-level nurse practitioner education to the DNP degree by 2025. Four workgroups with broad representation addressed issues in education, outcomes, capacity, and messaging related to this transition. Faculty explored the impact of COVID-19 on new graduate nurses and nursing students (n = 472) in terms of safety and interest in nursing, specifically related to self-efficacy, geographic region case density, and frontline experience in health care. Concerns about personal safety and the safety of others were apparent. Over time, this may lead to a decrease in willingness to enter or remain in the nursing profession. In another study, 113 prelicensure students from 3 countries perceived their learning needs were better met in a traditional clinical environment than in face-to-face simulation or screen-based simulation (rated lowest). This issue includes many articles and teaching tips that you can use with your students. Read the issue and pass to colleagues.
