The Competency-Based Education for Practice-Ready Nurse Graduates project is an initiative that provides funding and technical assistance to 10 schools of nursing that are piloting a competency-based education developed by the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN). Each school will receive $100,000 in funding from AACN to support curriculum redesign efforts through early 2025. The goal of the initiative is to prepare future nurses on curriculum about population health and one other content area selected by each school.
