    In numerous, oftentimes seemingly small ways, faculty in schools of nursing are implementing the recommendations of the Institute of Medicine report, The Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health. These practices are the building blocks that will lead to a future of excellence in nursing education.

    Building the Future of Nursing links the NLN mission and its core value of excellence to this important work. The chapters in this text (originally accepted for publication in the Innovation Center of the NLN peer-reviewed research journal, Nursing Education Perspectives) highlight how faculty are using the recommendations for al types of nursing education, nationally and internationally.

  • Features
    With this book, the NLN mission and core value of excellence are linked to the work of the Institute of Medicine (IOM) as reported in The Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health, published in 2011. The IOM's publication provides direction for nursing practice, nursing leadership, and nursing education and serves as a point of reference for this collection. This work by the IOM serves as a point of reference for this collection of peer-reviewed articles, accepted originally for publication in the Innovation Center of the NLN research journal, Nursing Education Perspectives. Each article showcases how faculty at all levels of nursing education, nationally and internationally, are implementing the recommendations of the Future of Nursing report. Many, many excellent faculty in schools of nursing are implementing these recommendations on a daily basis in numerous, oftentimes seemingly small ways. Yet these small ways are the building blocks that will lead to a future of excellence in nursing education.

    The NLN is proud to present these innovative teaching/learning strategies as we work toward a bright future for nursing. We encourage all readers to consider sharing their day-to-day expressions of excellence with their nursing colleagues. As we all work together, excellence in nursing education becomes not a recommendation but a reality.
