Guiding Principles for Future Patient Care Delivery

The care delivery system of the future will be characterized by vast complexity due to the use of sophisticated technology, the aging of the population with the associated growth in chronic health issues, as well as the diversity of patient populations and practice settings.

Nurses practicing in the care delivery system of the future will need to be skilled in conducting and using research, utilizing advanced technology, communicating and relating skillfully and leading effectively.

Therefore, AONL supports the Tri-Council for Nursing and recommends that the minimum educational credential for nursing practice in the care delivery system of the future is the baccalaureate degree in nursing.
