Leaders of the nursing community gathered at the Susan B. Anthony House Saturday morning to discuss the future of their field.

Doctor Lynda Dimitroff, of the Future of Nursing Coalition, spoke to a room full of nurses about how nursing has changed and needs to continue to change moving forward.

The initiative comes from a report done in 2010 by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the Institute of Medicine. It focused on increasing education for nurses, and explaining how they can practice to their full extent.

Dr. Lynda Dimitroff said, "Currently there are over three million practicing registered nurses in the United States. We need to create opportunity for change in advancing healthcare utilizing the profession of nursing."

Dimitroff says coalitions across the state will continue to travel, talking to leaders in the nursing field and implementing the study.
