I hope this note finds you doing well.  I wanted to pass along the article citations from the August issue of the Journal of Nursing Education.  This issue has a special focus on the Doctor of Nursing Practice and because the SON is in the planning stages of implementing a DNP program I thought these articles would be of particular interest.  As of January, 2014 we will have a current subscription but until then any articles from this journal have to be requested through inter library loan.
