In part 2 of a 2-part series on future nursing administration graduate curricula, the authors build on the call to action in part 1 (October 2006). First, they briefly describe important reference documents that formed the foundation for this collaborative work. Second, a new American Organization of Nurse Executives(AONE)-Council on Graduate Education for Administration in Nursing (CGEAN) Three-dimensional Administration Curriculum Model visually proposes 5 domains, 10 domain threads, and 5 competency levels. The authors then emphasize the MSN and PhD degrees as essential for the survival of nursing administration science. Fourth, ideas about innovative teaching strategies for the future are described. Finally, the series concludes with issues that need further attention. Readers are invited to provide insight from their own experience. This article offers academic program coordinators and nurse executives a starting point for evaluating, revising, and refreshing nursing administration graduate curricula. The goal is to more closely align curricula and teaching strategies with realities in today's complex healthcare environment.
