The authors outline a clear vision of what nursing education canand should be and provide practical exemplars of how we can achievethis vision. This is a call for us to work together as guardians ofthe discipline to assure that future nurses enter the health caresystem ready and able to meet the challenges ahead.
Pamela M. Ironside, director, Center for Research inNursing Education, Indiana University

Since the last national nursing education studyalmost forty years ago, profound changes in science, technology,and the nature and settings of nursing practice have reshaped thefield. Yet schools have lagged behind in adapting to these changes.Added to this, the profession faces a shortage of nurses andnursing faculty.
