This article examines current trends in nursing education and proposes undergraduate curriculum changes that are needed to meet the needs and goals of the Institute of Medicine Report: The Future of Nursing, Leading Change, Advancing Health, and The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Curricular changes were developed and implemented during the development of the Affordable Care Act, the Future of Nursing Initiative report, and the Carnegie Report on Undergraduate Nursing Education. The changes will continue to evolve dynamically and are presented here for consideration.
