Transforming Nursing Practice

future of nursingIf you were going to dream big, what changes would you make to your nursing practice?

Last November, the Institute of Medicine (IOM) issued a special report titled “The Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health.” It’s an in-depth look at the role nurses should play in a changing healthcare system, as the new legislative reforms are phased in over the next decade. And it definitely “dreams big” in terms of expanding the scope of the nursing profession, stating that:

A number of barriers prevent nurses from being able to respond effectively to rapidly changing health care settings and an evolving health care system. These barriers need to be overcome to ensure that nurses are well-positioned to lead change and advance health.

Three points about nursing leadership

The committee that authored the report developed four key messages that form the basis for the discussion and recommendations presented within it. The first three deal directly with the nursing practice, and these are as follows:

  1. Nurses should practice to the full extent of their education and training.
  2. Nurses should achieve higher levels of education and training, through an improved education system that promotes seamless academic progression.
  3. Nurses should be full partners with physicians and other health professionals, in redesigning healthcare in the United States.
