The Impact of the Institute of Medicine report on the Future of Nursing
In 2010, the Institute of Medicine released a report titled, “The Future of Nursing; Leading Change, Advancing Health.” The Institute of Medicine collaborated with The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) and for two years looked at the impact of the changing environment of health care delivery in the United States, and how nurses factor into the evolving health care system (www.IOM.edu).
The joint initiative details 8 recommendations to remove what ...view middle of the document...

The IOM expands this recommendation by advocating for transition-to-practice programs not only for new graduate registered nurses from an accredited, pre-licensure program, but also for a new APRN, and when nurses change their clinical areas (www.IOM.edu).
Now, in 2014, most facilities have developed and incorporated new graduate RN residency programs. In a 2012 study, many benefits were reported such as lower turnover rates. In the 15 hospitals involved in this study had a decrease in nursing turnover rates, over a 12 month period from 36.8%, pre-residency, to 6.41%, post-residency (www.medscape.com)
Recommendation 4
Increase the proportion of nurses with a baccalaureate degree to 80% by 2020. Incorporating previous studies that showed an improvement in patient outcomes in correlation with the percentage of nurses that have at least a baccalaureate degree in nursing within a facility (Aiken, 2008), the IOM suggests that facilities should encourage associate degree nurses to start RN-BSN programs within 5 years after graduation, and offer incentives such as tuition reimbursement, promotions, and increased salaries (www.IOM.edu)
An article published by the Emergency Nurses Association regarding nurses pursuing higher education, reported that the number of nurses currently enrolled in doctoral programs rose 43% from 2010 to 2012, the number of nurse practitioners in the U.S. increased by 69% between 2001 and 2011 (Carpenter Aquino, 2014, pg 14-15).
Recommendation 5
The IOM recommends doubling the number of nurses with a doctorate by 2020. The aim of this recommendation is to increase the role of nurses in research, development of standards of care, and to diversify nursing faculty (www.IOM.edu)
Recommendation 6
Ensure that nurses engage in lifelong learning (www.IOM.edu)
This is essentially reiterating what already takes place at the state level. As is the standard in many states, the Nevada State Board of Nursing requires all registered nurses to complete 30 hours of continuing education units in order to renew their nursing license. (www.nevadanursingboard.org)
Recommendation 7
Prepare and enable nurses to lead change to advance health. Acknowledging that nurses should be represented at every leadership level, the IOM encourages nurses to be pro-active in their own advancement of skills, continuing their education, and work with nursing organizations to develop mentoring programs. (www.IOM.edu)
Recommendation 8
Build an infrastructure for the collection and analysis of inter-professional health care workforce data. Including many health care disciplines such as medicine, nursing, dentistry, and...
