‘Future of Nursing Report,’ health equity among topics to be covered.

The future of nursing will be the guiding topic of the Duke University School of Nursing’s 58th annual Harriet Cook Carter Lecture on February 2 at 3 p.m.

Susan B. Hassmiller, PhD, RN, FAAN, of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the Future of Nursing: Campaign for Action, will be this year’s featured presenter.

The lecture will occur via Zoom and is entitled “The Future of Nursing: A Look Back and A Look Ahead.” Hassmiller will cover the importance of nurses being involved in policy decision making and health equity advancement in addition to discussing the first and upcoming “Future of Nursing” reports.

The “Future of Nursing Report” has shaped the nursing field since it was first released as “The Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health” 10 years ago by the then-named Institute of Medicine in partnership with the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. The report outlines the ways nurses’ roles, responsibilities and education should evolve to meet the increasing demand on the health care system as well as making a case for why more nurses should assume leadership positions.

As director of the Campaign for Action, Hassmiller has led the endeavor to carry out the recommendations outlined in the first report while playing a vital role in the upcoming revision, “The Future of Nursing 2020–2030,” to be released later this spring. Hassmiller is also the senior adviser for nursing for the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and, up until December, was the senior scholar-in-residence and senior adviser to the president on nursing at the National Academy of Medicine.

The Harriet Cook Carter Lecture is named in honor of Harriet Cook Carter, nurse and honorary member of the Alumni Association of the Duke University School of Nursing. The lecture series was designed to give recognition to nursing as an academic discipline within the university and as a profession within society; to stimulate ideas for improving nursing education, nursing service and nursing research; and to stimulate interest, support and ideas for improving health care and health education in society.

This event is free and open to the public. Registration is required.
