IOM Future of Nursing Recommendations Name Professor Institution Course Date IOM Future of Nursing Recommendations Recommendation four seeks increasing the baccalaureate degree holders in nursing to 80% by 2020. Baccalaureate degree in nursing is normally achieved after getting a bachelor degree in nursing which I am currently pursuing. Upon completing the bachelor degree I look forward to registering for baccalaureate degree to become a registered nurse. Therefore I see myself meeting this recommendation before 2020. Furthermore my current institution of study fully embraces the IOM recommendation and is currently working to define an academic pathway that encourages further education for nurses before entering the job market as a nurse. I also see myself striving towards baccalaureate degree since most of the healthcare centers currently encourage workers to register for baccalaureate degree programs meaning that seeking employment without it will be impossible in the future. The fifth recommendation suggests doubling the patient care (Nehls et al. 2016). Ph.D. on the other side majors on research methodology that theorize nursing research and develop nursing faculty through the provision of an array of information in different fields. To proceed to the doctorate level I will major on DNP. References Blegen M. A. Goode C. J. Park S. H. Vaughn T. & Spetz J. (2013). Baccalaureate Education in Nursing and Patient Outcomes.
