The American Nurses Association (ANA) presents the following information received from the Institute of Medicine (IOM):

The Institute of Medicine (IOM), in collaboration with the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF), has established a major initiative on the future of nursing. Nursing faces a number of challenges that must be overcome to fulfill the promise of health care reform and meet the nation’s health needs. The future of health care is closely tied to the future of nursing, and it is critical to ensure that the nursing workforce has the capacity in numbers and skill competencies to meet present and future needs. The IOM committee will define a clear agenda and blueprint for action including changes in public and institutional policies at the national, state, and local levels. The committee’s recommendations will address a range of system changes, including innovative ways to improve health care quality and address the nursing shortage in the United States.
