The IOM Report on the Future of Nursing: One Year Later


McNeal, Gloria J., ABNF Journal


The landmark report of the Institute of Medicine (IOM) on The Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health has reached its first anniversary. Much has happened since this historic report was released on October 5, 2010, which continues to be one of the most visited reports on the IOM website.

From a legislative perspective, the Obama Administration has called upon Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, through the Senate Appropriations Committee, to work with the US Department of Health and Human Services and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid, to develop a plan to implement the eight recommendations and to report back to the Committee in early 2012. …
