The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching has joined it's voice to several other scholarly studies since 2003, with the release of it's report Educating Nurses: A Call for Radical Transformation".
“Redesigning nursing education is an urgent societal agenda," the authors write. "The profound changes in nursing practice and health care call for equally profound changes in the education of nurses and the preparation of nurse educators. Unfortunately, the current climate rewards short-term focus and cost-savings over the quality of nursing education and patient care."
