Education

 

At every level, nursing education must improve the learned understanding of care management, quality-improvement methods, systems-level change management and the changing roles of nurses in a reformed health care system.

Nursing education should serve as a platform for continued lifelong learning and include opportunities for seamless transitions to higher-degree programs. Nurses should be educated alongside physicians and other health care professionals, as students and throughout their careers, in order to foster interprofessional collaboration.

Nurses with doctorates are needed to teach the next generation of nurses, to advance nurse-led science and discovery and to provide nursing leadership for the nation.

A key goal is to make it easier for nurses currently in school to continue their education and for nurses in the workforce to return to school.

 

Education relates to a number of the Institute of Medicine's (IOM) recommendations, including:

  • implementing nurse residency programs;
  • increasing the proportion of nurses with a baccalaureate degree to 80 percent by 2020;
  • doubling the number of nurses with a doctorate degree by 2020 and
  • ensuring that nurses engage in lifelong learning.
