What RNs Need by 2020

Provided by Regent University

The ever-evolving world of healthcare has changed the nursing landscape in a dynamic way. Today’s nurses must meet the intricate needs of 21st century healthcare. This new criterion demands a shift from skill-based competencies to something much more complex.

Nurses are not only the first line of defense, but they are also taking on more lead roles in hospitals, doctor’s offices and other healthcare organizations. They are focused on improving patient efficiency and health policy while embracing an evidence-based practice approach.

In 2010, the Institute of Medicine issued a report on the future of nursing and addressed the need for higher-level training in nursing education. In a compelling effort to close the quality gap between leading-edge healthcare versus the healthcare we actually receive, a nursing initiative was launched, requiring more RNs to hold a bachelor’s in nursing by 2020.

If you plan to stay competitive, you’ll need to rise to this new standard. Regent University’s RN to B.S. in Nursing program will help you navigate today’s complex healthcare system, with a focus on professional practice and caring service — mind, body and spirit.
