New Report: Preparing Registered Nurses for Enhanced Roles in Primary Care

New York, NY

Today, the Josiah Macy Jr. Foundation issued a series of recommendations for leaders of nursing schools, primary care practices, and health systems on preparing registered nurses for enhanced roles in primary care.

The recommendations stem from a June 2016 Macy Conference that brought together more than 40 leaders in nursing, primary care, healthcare delivery, philanthropy, academia and more, to generate actionable recommendations around the potential for registered nurses to help meet today’s urgent needs in primary care.

On October 7, conference co-chairs Diana J. Mason, PhD, RN, FAAN, former president of the American Academy of Nursing; Thomas Bodenheimer, MD, MPH, co-director of the Center for Excellence in Primary Care at the University of California San Francisco School of Medicine; along with George Thibault, MD, president of the Macy Foundation, will host a web conference from 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm ET to discuss how educational institutions and healthcare systems can begin to implement the recommendations.

  • RSVP for the October 7 web conference.
