New Publication from the Initiative on the Future of Nursing

Yesterday, the Institute of Medicine (IOM) released A Summary of the February 2010 Forum on the Future of Nursing: Education. This publication summarizes the discussions of the Forum, held at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston to examine challenges and opportunities associated with nursing education overall.  You can access the publication in the link above where it can be downloaded as a free PDF or purchased in hard copy.  In addition, you can access the archived webcast and other information on the Forum home page.  The archived video webcast is available in the 'Other Meeting Resources' section of the page.

In advance of the Forum on Education, the INQRI program partnered with the Initiative on the Future of Nursing (IFN) to present the February 18 edition of Change of Shift. In anticipation of the forum, we selected nursing education as our theme. 

The IFN committee's final report, which will include its conclusions and recommendations, will be released this fall. Summaries of the October 2009 Forum on acute care and the December 2009 Forum on care in the community are already available on IOM's website.
