North Carolina Advancing the IOM Agenda
For North Carolina, the impact of the recommendations of the Institute of Medicine (IOM) Report, The Future of Nursing; Leading Change, Advancing Health, has been transformational. North Carolina is proud of its five-year accomplishments toward the 2010 IOM recommendations. While excitement and momentum has prevailed and achieved intended consequences, perhaps the most exciting is the unintentional consequence of enhanced relationship based collaboration. Across our state, relationships between organizations that have historically operated in a solo and competitive manner regarding nursing workforce activities have matured and evolved such that collaborative synergy is achieving results on many levels. North Carolina is committed to advancing the IOM agenda!
