Contribute to creating the future of your profession. The National Academy of Medicine’s Committee on the Future of Nursing 2020-2030 will hold three meetings throughout the nation this summer and it wants to hear from you. Help others speak up, too, by telling others about the sessions and getting as many nurses as possible engaged in this historic study.

The study committee wants your insights on how to advance the profession of nursing 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. Each meeting will feature panel discussions about a specific topic, followed by time for public comments.

Attend a meeting, register to watch a meeting via webcast or hold a “watch party” to view a meeting online with your colleagues, and together be part of the future of your profession. Select online comments will be read aloud during the meetings. Also, join a Twitter chat to share your insights with the NAM. Details on all are below.
