Iom future of nursing report and nursing
The four key messages in the IOM report recommendations are designed to transform and influence nursing practice, education and training, leadership, and workforce development. The first message is that nurses must practice to the full extent of their education and training. This encourages nurses to take on increased responsibility in patient care by making use of their expertise in order to provide a higher level of service. The second message advocates for an emphasis on interprofessional collaboration between doctors and nurses, allowing for greater integration between healthcare teams as well as improved patient outcomes. The third message calls for nurses to assume leadership roles in shaping healthcare policy at all levels; this includes increasing their visibility within healthcare organizations as well as advocating for improved safety standards, access to care, quality assurance data collection/analysis, among other initiatives.. Finally, the fourth message states that nurse workforce development should be supported by both public and private sectors through financial investments such as scholarships or grants which allow more individuals access to high-quality nursing education programs.
By implementing these messages into nurse’s practices it has allowed them not only become invaluable members of the health team but also empowered them with the knowledge they need to make decisions that improve overall patient care while promoting growth within their field of study.
