Nurses for Change – Special Webcast Event


How to Improve Health Care by Empowering Nurses
Thursday, January 13, 2011 – 11:00 a.m. – 12:15 p.m. ET

On October 5th, 2010, the Institute of Medicine, in collaboration with the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, published a landmark report, The Future of Nursing: Advancing Health, Leading Change. This 600+ page report, the result of two years of research and work, has already generated a great deal of discussion and controversy in the nursing and medical professions.

Join Elaine Keavney (American Public University) and Luda Lobodzinskiy (MultiCare Health System) for an in-depth analysis of this report, its recommendations, and its repercussions for both nursing education and clinical practice. Some of the recommendations for discussion include:

  • Removing scope-of-practice barriers
  • Implementing nurse residency programs
  • Increasing the proportion of nurses with B.S.N. degree to 80% by 2020
  • Expanding opportunities for nurses to lead and diffuse collaborative improvement efforts
  • Preparing and enabling nurses to lead change to advance health

Join APU and industry experts as they discuss the various avenues for encouraging growth and education in the field of nursing.
