Nurses should be full partners, with physicians and other health professionals, in redesigning health care in the United States. Nursing must produce leaders, from the bedside to the boardroom, who can serve as full partners and be accountable for their own contributions to delivering high-quality care while working with leaders from other health professions. IOM Leadership Recommendations
Develop strategies to ensure nursing is skilled to provide leadership from the bedside to the boardroom. Virginia Leadership Goal
Continue to determine strategic boards to which nurses could be appointed and work with stakeholders to identify, mentor, and recommend individuals for those appointments. Collaborate with schools of nursing to ensure the curriculum focuses on leadership skills necessary for today’s complex healthcare environment. Virginia Leadership Objectives
