The Willis Commission on Nursing Education [I]

from the commission website:

The Willis Commission has now published its full report into the future of nursing education.

See the key findings from the report below (with my emphasis)
Willis Commission: Report
  • Patient centred care should be at the heart of all pre-registration nursing education and continuing professional development.
  • There were no shortcomings found in nursing education that could be directly responsible for poor standards of care or a decline in care standards.
  • Nurses and their organisations must stand up to be counted on the challenge of poor care and loss of public confidence in order to restore professional pride.
  • Nursing education needs to imbed patient safety and dignity as a top priority.
  • Better evaluation of and research into nursing education programmes is necessary to ensure a programme that is fit for purpose.
  • The future nursing workforce requires nurses to work in a variety of settings.
  • Recruitment campaigns need to widen their diversity in order to encourage the widest, best possible range of applicants.
  • Health care service providers must fully support nursing education.
  • Universities need to recognise nursing as a practice and research discipline.
  • Attention needs to be paid to developing a strategic understanding of the nursing workforce as a whole and as a UK-wide resource.
