The increasing number of Americans needing orthopedic health care is a growing concern given the aging population and the diminishing pool of primary and specialty care physicians. In a call to action, the Institute of Medicine's report, The Future of Nursing, advocates for innovative solutions, including the transformation of nursing education and practice, to meet the health care needs of our nation. Preparing nurse practitioners to fill this gap through the development of an orthopedic residency option within the Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) degree can fulfill this need. The logic model can serve as a guide to develop and evaluate such a program. The alignment between the American Association of Colleges of Nursing's DNP Essentials and the resources, curriculum, outcomes, and impact of an orthopedic residency is described so similar programs can be established to improve the access to orthopedic care by doctorally prepared nurse practitioners.
