In October 2010, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) and the Institute of Medicine (IOM) jointly released The Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health, calling it a blueprint for transforming the American health system by strengthening nursing care and better preparing nurses to
help lead reform. This issue begins a four-part miniseries on the report, digesting its educational progression recommendations and offering an early look at how key players are responding. The report calls for increasing the percentage of nurses holding the bachelor of science in nursing (BSN) degree or higher to 80 and for doubling doctorates by 2020. This will require fundamental changes: new competency-based curricula; seamless educational progression; more funding for accelerated programs, educational capacity building, and student diversity; and stronger employer incentives to spur progression.
