The coming 12 months will see nursing face a series of questions about its practice, structure and regulation and working in multidisciplinary teams. A number of solutions are being developed anticipating major reports. This is a difficult and challenging environment for nursing and nursing workforce recruitment, requiring structural, ethical and quality changes. How do we make nursing an attractive and flexible profession to meet the workforce needs of the next 3 decades?
