The Challenge That Lies Ahead

Donna E. Shalala, Ph.D., former secretary, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services; president, University of Miami; chair, Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Initiative on the Future of Nursing, at the Institute of Medicine, is the inaugural post for the Initiative on the Future of Nursing. 

We’re now in my second week as chair of the study committee for the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Initiative on the Future of Nursing, at the Institute of Medicine. When we launched this initiative on July 14 in the presence of so many groups with a stake in what happens with nursing, it became even clearer to me the importance of our work.

The Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health

The Future of Nursing: Leading Change and Advancing Health explores how nurses' roles, responsibilities, and education should change significantly to meet the increased demand for care that will be created by health care reform and to advance improvements in America's increasingly complex health system.

It was at a 2002 meeting at Children’s Memorial Hospital in Chicago that Connie Hill, MSN, RN, reviewed the chart of a child who had been on a ventilator in her unit for two years. She asked her colleagues why the child had not been discharged. “It wasn’t because she was not medically stable,” Ms. Hill said recently, “but because there was a lack of community resources to support her.”
