This panel paper is the second installment in a six-part Nursing Outlook special edition based on the 2022 Emory Business Case for Nursing Summit. The 2022 summit convened national nursing, health care, and business leaders to explore possible solutions to nursing workforce crises, including the nursing shortage. Each of the summit's four panels authored a paper in the special edition on their respective topic(s), and this panel paper focuses on the topic of nursing workforce growth. It discusses priority areas for academia to help ameliorate nursing shortages, including through changes to nursing curricula and/or programming, greater attention to nursing financial needs (including nursing student loans), and regulatory reforms.
