The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine announced a Public Session for The Committee on The Future of Nursing 2020-2030 to be held on Wednesday, March 20, 2019 from 1:30 PM to 4:00 PM ET in Washington, DC (2101 Constitution Avenue, NW, Washington, DC 20418). Attendance via webinar is available.
"This committee has been tasked by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation to extend the vision for the nursing profession into 2030 and to chart a path for the nursing profession to help our nation create a culture of health, reduce health disparities, and improve the health and well-being of the U.S. population in the 21st century. The committee will examine the lessons learned from the Future of Nursing Campaign for Action, as well as the current state of science and technology to inform their assessment of the capacity of the profession to meet the anticipated health and social care demands from 2020 to 2030.
Through the course of the study, the committee will meet several times. The public session is one of the many processes that the committee will use to gather information and assemble evidence that members will examine and discuss in the course of making the committee’s findings, conclusions, and recommendations. The focus of this public session is for the committee to clarify the scope of the charge with the study sponsor and initiate the process of gathering relevant information related to the study.
This public session will be accessible to the public via webinar and in-person attendance (seating is limited). Please register online to receive an email with the instructions on how to join this public session.
