Visions for the Future

  • Villeneuve and MacDonald (2006) Toward 2020 Visions for Nursing

  • What will health and illness look like in 2020?

  • What roles, scopes and practice settings?

A Sense of the Scenarios

  • Focus on health and communities

  • Enhanced roles for all providers

  • Integrated interprofessional education

  • Core competencies taught in schools

  • Targets for increasing diversity

  • If we maintain current delivery models and levels of demand, then the shortages of nurses, physicians and other professionals being experienced in 2006 are irresolvable. We can stay on this course of another few years (more seats) or we can change demand and delivery

We are not working in the health care system we grew up in. Even if you wanted to keep that, it’s too late, it’s already gone.
