Dear OADN Members:
Over the past years, OADN has been a major advocate of academic progression to ensure that the associate degree pathway remains viable. In 2017, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, Academic Progression in Nursing (APIN) program concluded, and the National Education Progression in Nursing (NEPIN) collaborative was formed. The OADN Board of Directors realized the extreme importance of the work on academic progression and supported OADN being involved. OADN is represented on the Leadership Alliance of NEPIN and the OADN Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, serves as the fiduciary and convener for the collaborative.
I recently asked NEPIN National Program Director, Tina Lear to provide an update on their work. Tina, along with Mary Dickow, OADN’s Director of Leadership Development, will be presenting at the upcoming OADN virtual convention. You can attend their presentation by registering here.
