Nursing Education Plan White Paper and Recommendations for California
Massive changes in healthcare delivery drive the need to transform how RNs are prepared. As the largest provider group in the state, nurses must practice and lead in a variety of settings, in new roles, and in an environment that is shifting from providing care to managing health. This report offers recommendations and strategies to prepare nurses for these changes and serves as a call to action for nursing education and practice.
