The IOM report on the future of nursing recommends:
1- Nurses should practice to the full extent of their education and training.
2- Nurses should achieve higher levels of education and training through an improved education system that promotes seamless academic progression.
3- Nurses should be full partners, with physicians and other health care professionals, in redesigning health care in the United States.
4- Effective workforce planning and policy making require better data collection and an improved information infrastructure.
Lienhard School of Nursing is providing nurses the highest level of education, and is promoting seamless academic progression by offering bridge programs and our new RN/BS completion option. We are promoting multidisciplinary education through the College of Health Professions.
