When nurses lead, from the boardroom to the bedside, patient outcomes are better. That’s why two of the recommendations in the IOM’s 2010 report on the future of nursing focus on leadership: nurses need to be decision-makers in designing health systems and key collaborators on health care teams. Since the report’s release, nurse leadership on boards has grown and top nursing schools are offering more leadership and interdisciplinary preparation-but challenges remain. These are among findings presented by Olga Yakusheva , a PhD economist and associate professor at the University of Michigan School of Nursing and School of Public Health, as she reviews the progress on the IOM recommendation that nurses should be full partners with other health professionals in redesigning health care in the United States.

Diana J. Mason, PhD, RN, FAAN, Co-Director, Center for Health, Media & Policy at Hunter College, City University of New York, moderated the webinar.
