AJN editor shares her take on the past year’s nursing reports

The extended Year of the Nurse and the Midwife has yielded numerous reports on the nursing profession, wrote the editor of the American Journal of Nursing in her July editorial. She provides links to and brief summaries of the publications, including a note on the supplemental statement issued with the National Academy of Medicine’s Future of Nursing 2020-2030 report. Her own assessment of these efforts: “The path to the future needs more than nursing's vision; it requires buy-in from regulatory and financial sectors and a road map to help navigate the way forward for nurses in all settings.”
