From the summary:
The shortage of well-educated nurses has been part of the nation’s health care conversation, with policy leaders as well as President Obama noting the essential role nurses play in ensuring patient safety. The President called them “the bedrock” of health care. Now, The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching is calling for changes in how we educate nurses, referring both to the current nursing shortage and that nurses are ill-prepared for the profound changes in science, technology and the nature and settings of nursing practice. Informed by the results of three national surveys and extended site visits during a multi-year study, the authors of Educating Nurses: A Call for Radical Transformation recommend essential changes in policy, curriculum and in the way nursing programs approach student learning.
