IOM Report & Recommendations

The Institute of Medicine report, The Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health, is a thorough examination of how nurses’ roles, responsibilities and education should change to meet the needs of an aging, increasingly diverse population and to respond to a complex, evolving health care system. The recommendations in the report focus on the critical intersection between the health needs of patients across the lifespan and the readiness of the nursing workforce. These recommendations are intended to support efforts to improve health care for all Americans by enhancing nurses’ contributions to the delivery of care.
