From the Chief Nurse Anne Woods…

How does the Future of Nursing Report, developed by the Institute of Medicine and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, impact nurse executives and their staffs? Suzanne Smith, Editor-in-Chief of JONA, and Richard Hader, Editor-in-Chief of Nursing Management, joined the Lippincott Nurse Editors Roundtable Webcast on March 22 to discuss the report and how their journals are supporting the initiative. Nursing Management is taking an active role in educating nurse leaders on the Report by publishing a 5-part series on the key messages, running in the March through July issues. The entire Future of Nursing webcast has been archived and is available, free of charge.
