The IOM report has more than 40 recommendations that were condensed into 8 primary recommendations for advancing nursing in the US. These, in turn, have been assigned to one of three focus areas / pillars by the Future of Nursing. The FL-AC has prioritized these recommendations and adapted them to meet Florida’s needs.
Currently, three areas have been highlighted: Education, Leadership, and Practice. Each of these areas has an Action Team led by representatives of the FL-AC Steering Committee that is working on developing specific goals and objectives, and implementing activities to achieve the desired outcomes.
Additionally, the Florida Center for Nursing was awarded a Statewide Implementation Grant (SIP) from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, focusing on Promoting Nurse Leadership in the State of Florida.
