In January 2005, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation published the first issue of Charting Nursing's Future. Now a series of policy briefs, Charting Nursing's Future was conceived as a way to educate and inform hospital executives, state and national lawmakers, nursing and nursing education leaders and other policy-makers about a wide range of issues relating to the nursing shortage, the role of nurses in quality initiatives and more.
Since the inaugural issue, Charting Nursing's Future has addressed topics such as nursing education, collaboration to ease the nursing shortage, recruitment and retention, transformation of the work environment, nursing workforce data collection, quality patient care, the nursing faculty shortage and the role of nurse leaders in transforming public health.
