The movement to improve care: the Institute of Medicine quality reports and implications for the advanced practice registered nurse.
Since the late 1990s, there has been a movement in the United States to improve care. Nursing has been slow to embrace this movement. Nursing education was particularly slow in recognizing that the movement and the problem of health care quality related to nursing education, both undergraduate and graduate. To improve care requires efforts from practice and health care education perspectives. This article discusses the quality of care in the United States, the movement to improve, and some of the critical issues as they relate to advanced practice nursing.
