New York University College of Nursing’s Dean Terry Fulmer along with the Alex and Rita Hillman Family Foundation will host a panel presentation and discussion on "The Future of Nursing" report, a Robert Wood Johnson Initiative at the Institute of Medicine (IOM), on February 17, 2011, from 6:00p - 7:30p at the NYU Welcome Center, Shimkin Hall, 50 West 4th Street and Washington Square East, NYC. [Subways A,C,E, B,D,M to West 4th Street; 6 line to Astor Place; R train to 8th Street.].
“The Future of Nursing,” report, released in October 2010, explores how nurses' roles, responsibilities, and education should change significantly to meet the increased demand for care that will be created by health care reform and to advance improvements in America's increasingly complex health system.
Panel members include:
- Dr. Christine Kovner, RN, FAAN, NYUCN faculty member who will give an overview of the report and its eight recommendations;
- Dr. Kimberly Glassman, RN, chief nursing officer, NYU Langone Medical Center and Research Associate Professor of Nursing, discusses the Report from the viewpoint of academic medical centers focusing on the most important recommendations to implement;
- Dr. Julie Fairman, RN, FAAN, U Penn professor of nursing, and director of the Barbara Bates Center for the Study of the History of Nursing, will discuss the previous commissions on nursing and what happened to those recommendations and how the IOM commission is different;
- Dr. Marc Gourevitch, Director of NYU Langone Medical Center's Division of General Internal Medicine, will comment on two of the reports' recommendations: 1) expanded scope of practice for nurse practitioners; 2) 80% of RNs have a BS by 2020. Dr. Gourevitch brings the perspective of a general internal medicine doctor working at a large urban medical center with huge residency programs.
