Leader reflects on progress since release of IOM nursing report


When the IOM released its report The Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health in 2010, the report’s sponsors were hopeful it would advance the nursing profession and influence the trajectory of health reform. Almost 10 years later, AONL member Sue Hassmiller, PhD, RN, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s senior adviser for nursing who served as study director for the report, said progress has exceeded expectations in several areas. One highlight: dramatic growth in the number of employed nurses with bachelor’s degrees. Significant strides have also been made in removing practice barriers for nurse practitioners and in increasing the diversity of the nursing workforce, but Hassmiller would like to see more progress in these areas.
