The Future of Nursing
Introduction
In 1970 The Institute of Medicine was founded by the National Academy of sciences. The National Academy of sciences advises the federal government on issues involving medical care, education, and research. In 2010 the Institute of Medicine issued “The future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health.” The recommendations in the report are directed towards state and local governments, policy makers licensing bodies, colleges, nurses, health care researchers, and many other groups and organizations ("IOM," 2010, p. 16).

* By 2020 double the numbers of nurses with a masters or doctorate degrees.

In 2010 President Obama addressed the American Nurses Association to announce investments to expand the primary care workforce. These included more funding for nurse practioner students and for nurse and nurse practioner run clinics. The President states, “This is a larger effort to make our system work better for nurses and doctors, and to improve the quality of care for patients ("IOM," 2010, p. 109).
The Institute of Medicine suggests practices must be transformed to make nurses better prepared to enter the workforce. The Institute of Medicine recommends that nurse residency programs be utilized to provide nurses with an appropriate transition from nursing school to nursing practice, thus developing knowledgeable nurses who are competent ("IOM," 2010, p. 148). The practice I work in no longer has a nurse residency program due to budget cuts. Nurse residency programs offers new nurses the confidence, competency, skills, and recourses they need to become a competent nurse.
