The RWJF Initiative on the Future of Nursing Launches New Website to Help Advance the Recommendations in IOM Report

Website will feature ways to get involved, educational resources, research and data

As part of the Initiative on the Future of Nursing, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation has launched a new website to include:

  • details on the Institute of Medicine recommendations from the Future of Nursing report and the research and data behind them
  • ideas, action steps and resources for how organizations can become involved 
  • toolkits and template materials for those working on the ground to advance the recommendations in their communities.

We would like to invite you to join us in working to fulfill the promise of nursing. Please share this message with a friend or colleague so she or he can sign up to get involved or stay connected with the implementation of the recommendations as we move toward improving the health and health care of all Americans.

Additionally, on November 30, RWJF will feature a live webcast of the National Summit on Advancing Health through Nursing in Washington, D.C. The webcast will feature presentations by Risa Lavizzo-Mourey, M.D., M.B.A., president and CEO of RWJF; Donna Shalala, Ph.D., and Linda Burnes Bolton, Dr.P.H., R.N., FAAN, chair and vice chair of the Committee on the RWJF Initiative on the Future of Nursing, at the IOM; and a keynote presentation by Donald Berwick MD, MPP, FRCP, administrator for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. The Summit panels and presentations will highlight the recommendations from The Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health report and steps to help foster implementation.

The webcast will broadcast live via a link on RWJF Initiative on the Future of Nursing website dedicated to implementing the recommendations. You can register for the webcast in advance at
