As we undertake an urgent dialogue ... about dramatically increasing the number of nurses we add to our health care workforce, I’m encouraged that we’re equally focused on the kind of workforce we want to develop: one that is highly educated, one that is empowered to improve patient care, one that is equipped to lead high performing health care teams and, yes, one that is diverse.
