The Committee on the Future of Nursing 2020-2030 will hold a public session on March 20, 2019, from 1:30 to 4:00 p.m. ET online and at the National Academy of Sciences building in Washington, DC. This committee has been tasked by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation to extend the vision for the nursing profession into 2030 and to chart a path for the nursing profession to help our nation create a culture of health, reduce health disparities, and improve the health and well-being of the U.S. population in the 21st century.
Through the course of the study, the committee will meet several times. This public session is one of the many processes that the committee will use to gather information and assemble evidence that members will examine and discuss in the course of making the committee’s findings, conclusions, and recommendations. The focus of this public session is for the committee to clarify the scope of the charge with the study sponsor and initiate the process of gathering relevant information related to the study. Future public sessions will focus on specific topic areas and be conducted in other locations.
This public session will be accessible via webinar and in-person attendance (seating is limited).
Register online by 12:00 p.m. ET on March 20, 2019, to receive an email with instructions on how to join this public session.
