Since the last national nursing education study forty years ago, profound changes in science, technology, patient activism, the market-driven health care environment, and the nature of nursing practice have all radically transformed nursing education. Educating Nurses, part of the Preparation for the Professions series from the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, explores key issues for the future of the field as well as recommendations for revolutionary changes for administrators and faculty in nursing schools and programs.
