The INQRI blog recently came across another article regarding the rising need for advanced nursing education on nurse.com.
In its 2010 report, "The Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health," the Institute of Medicine called for doubling the number of doctorate-level nurses by 2020, and the Affordable Care Act’s sweeping changes demand a heavy influx of nurses in leadership roles.
The article continues the discussion of cost containment, and notes that the percentage of nurses obtaining master’s and research-focused doctorate degrees has increased 67% and 25% respectively between 2006 through 2011.
You think the patient is difficult? Maybe it’s you.
