The Initiative on the Future of Nursing was launched at the beginning of 2009 by the Institute of Medicine, in collaboration with the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF). The committee’s aim is to produce a report in 2010 about how nursing can evolve to fit the ever-changing healthcare system, and they are asking nurses from around the country to voice their opinions on the future of nursing.

Over the next few months, the committee will examine, debate, and review evidence submitted from around the country in an effort to develop a blueprint for change. The nursing community is being asked to submit innovations/models and barriers/opportunities for the committee to review.

Officially, the committee will review the following areas:

  • Reconceptualizing the role of nurses
  • Expanding nursing faculty, increasing the capacity of nursing schools, and redesigning nursing education
  • Care delivery and health professional education
  • Attracting and retaining well-prepared nurses
