Although nurses are rapidly adapting to new technology and their ability to give exceptional care to their patients. “Nurses have great potential to lead innovative strategies to improve the health care system. However, a variety of historical, regulatory, and policy barriers have limited nurses’ ability to contribute to widespread transformation (Kimball and O’Neil, 2002).” There are numbers of health care institution have put limitation and regulation on their nurses, some of this regulation are imposed by state law.

Education has very important role to update knowledge in nursing field and does affect the competency of the nurse clinician to provide care for the patients.

Vision for the future of nursing NUR 391 September 3, 2012 Vision for the future of nursing Today’s nurses focus on care for patients based on evidence based practice, which requires nurses to base their care on research based knowledge. It involves using the most credible and up to date research to guide the nurse through patient care. Evidence based practice (EBP) also stresses the use of known policies and protocols that are based on research rather than based on ‘that is how it has always been done attitudes.’ Evidence based practice also has many potential advantages including greater confidence in decision making and better patient outcomes. EBP has also helped with the nursing process which gears specific patient care to the individual based on that specific patients individual needs (Black, 2011). According to Black (2011), “nursing research enhances the status of nursing as a profession by expanding nursing’s scientific knowledge base.” (pg.
