Nurses are in the position to not only participate in, but lead the transformation of the health care delivery system to one that is focused on team-based, patient-centered care across the continuum. This transformation will require new skills and enhanced knowledge around population health, wellness and data analytics, among other things.

Guiding Principles for Defining the Role of the Nurse Executive in Technology Acquisition and Implementation
The chief nurse executive plays a critical role in the selection and implementation of information systems. Acquiring new systems is a complicated process that impacts the entire facility.
Today's health care environment is complex and creates demands requiring the professional nurse to be an astute critical thinker, confident and competent when caring for patients and families in multiple health care settings. However, since organizations are faced with increasing demands on resource utilization and simultaneous cost reductions, adequate attention to ensuring successful transition for the newly licensed nurse may be not be appropriately designed, managed, supported or evaluated.

Learn how nurses leaders prepare to invest in an aging workforce. More than 51 percent of the current workforce is age 40 or older — a 33 percent increase since 1980 — and 40 percent of the U.S. nurse workforce is age 50. As nurses age, retire or find employment outside of health care the number of employable nurses will decline.

AONL believes that nurse leaders are recognized leaders in the design, implementation and evaluation of future patient care delivery systems that effectively leverage human, financial and technological resources to produce safe, effective, patient-centered, timely, efficient and equitable health care.
Technology is revolutionizing the manner in which health care is delivered. Health systems are incorporating high-speed data networks, wireless solutions, handheld devices, automated exchanges between organizations/clinicians and patients and various forms of social media into their daily interactions.
According to the AACN-AONL task force that developed these guiding principles, an academic-practice partnership is a mechanism for advancing nursing practice to improve the health of the public. Such intentional and formalized relationships are based on mutual goals, respect, and shared knowledge. An academic-practice partnership is developed between a nursing education program and a care setting. Such relationships are defined broadly and may include partnerships within nursing, and other professions, corporations, government entities, and foundations.
