This presentation examines current health care trends and how these will influence how professional nurses practice in the near future. Most practice environments are rapidly evolving and changing to improve quality, reduce cost, increase access across settings as well as focus on the well-being of the professional providers. These evolving practice environments demand knowledge and skill sets that reflect an innovative and evidence-based approach to solving patient and care challenges. Therefore, all nurses in practice, educators and researchers too must examine and evolve their own educational practices and research competencies to keep the profession relevant and forward thinking.
