The Future of Nursing

The Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health is the title of a recently-released 600 page study from the National Academy of Sciences; it is the result of a collaborative study between the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (Princeton, NJ) and the Institute of Medicine (Washington, DC). On p.xi of the preface, this study discusses the roles of nurses as providers of healthcare under the new stipulations established by recent legislation. It details how nurses, as the primary care providers, have a major role to play in this country’s developing healthcare system. Part 2 of this report is called “A Fundamental Transformation of the Nursing Profession.” Summaries of the workshops that helped produce the report can also be accessed. We have looked at the nursing shortage in a previous entry.
