The IOM report “offer[s] a glimpse into what the future of nursing could be” (Institute of Medicine , 2010). The following will point out the impact of the IOM’s report on nursing education, nursing practice and will also discuss the future role of nurses as leaders in healthcare. Since the start of the last century, nursing has evolved from a vocational training program to a degree program at community colleges and universities. In recent years there has been much discussion with regards to the differences in training and preparedness of those nurses trained at the diploma or associate degree level, as compared to their nurse counterparts trained at bachelor’s degree level or higher. The report put out by the IOM not only discusses the impact that nurses can have in the future of healthcare but also encourages higher education so as to be better equipped to meet the growing demands and challenges of healthcare that affect the American population.
