Insights in Nursing Podcast, Episode 23

Posted by isntshelovlei on December 17, 2010

This week on Insights in Nursing the panelists delve into the Institute of Medicine’s report, The Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health. Topics on the docket include the IOM’s recommendation to have eighty percent of the nursing workforce be BSN-prepared by 2020 as well as extending full provider status to advanced practice nurses—something that has seen much resistance by our physician-friends in the media recently. In addition to the nursing shortage there’s also a shortage of primary health care providers—APN’s are ready and able to fill that void. I’m not sure if the problem that (some) physicians have with this idea is because some still live in the ice age and believe that nurses are some type of subordinate health care professional that needs to work for not with doctors, or if they just don’t want us dipping in their honey pots… You be the judge.
