The Future of Nursing

Core competencies and data management/utilization are among the major topics discussed in this 2015 NAP report – Future Directions of Credentialing Research in Nursing. Exploring the various strategies needed to equip an ever-expanding workforce as it embraces new technologies and responsibilities, this workshop summary provides a framework for discussion. This report owes its genesis to the groundbreaking 2011 study – The Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health published under the auspices of the IOM and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation; key recommendations are available. Since that time Charting Nursing’s Future has produced a series of policy briefs that address pertinent questions and concerns about the role of nurses in the provision of health care. The American Nurses Association has an apposite section on workforce advocacy that directly supports the conclusions advanced in the above publications.
