The Association for Nursing Professional Development (ANPD) advances the specialty practice of nursing professional development for the enhancement of healthcare outcomes. Professional development as a specialty of nursing practice is defined by standards, based on research, and critical to quality patient and organizational outcomes. ANPD is committed to providing research and resources that enhance our practice locally, in each of our organizations. As we integrate professional development best practice in achieving our organizations’ goals we truly enhance healthcare outcomes. As we focus on priorities, we enhance collaboration and provide valuable expertise in our organizations.
Abstract:

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s Initiative on The Future of Nursing at the Institute of Medicine (IOM) (Committee, 2011) was formed with the goal of identifying ways to transform the nursing profession to meet the challenges of a complex and rapidly changing health care system. The report on their findings was released in 2010. The committee made several recommendations regarding the education and training of both pre-licensure and established nurses throughout their career. The emphasis was on importance of preparing students for a career in nursing at the associate, baccalaureate and graduate levels. Equally important, the committee recognized that the recruitment and retention of well prepared nurses across the healthcare continuum depends on providing nurses with opportunities to improve competencies and skill. The complexity of the current healthcare system requires increasing specialization of nurses. Nurses who are initially well prepared and continue to develop professionally throughout their career are a key factor in obtaining positive patient outcomes. Finally the committee underscored the crucial element that nurses who are mentored and educated are prepared to assume leadership positions within healthcare systems or organizations where they are the largest segment of caregivers.
