Over the past several modules of study, we have discussed the practice of both nursing past and nursing future. Within module eleven, historical practices of nursing were reviewed, and you were asked to identify contributions of past nurses who greatly impacted our profession. Within module twelve, the future of nursing practice was presented and the impact of future nursing practice upon the education necessary to prepare future nurses was reviewed. Within modules nine and twelve, the future of nursing education was discussed. Now that you have been provided with a plethora of information about nursing practice and education (both past and future), I want you to take a few minutes and THINK OUTSIDE OF THE BOX. It is now your turn to create YOUR IDEAL future for nursing.
Describe what this will look like: policy, roles (practice), education, structure, anything and everything you desire. Write your thoughts and ideas for the future of nursing here. GO CRAZY!
