POST 1 (Christian)
Examining National QI Initiatives
The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (2021) explores the achievement of health equity in the nation through strengthening nursing capacity and expertise. The report builds on the essential role of nursing in ensuring social justice and community health advocacy as provided for by the Code of Ethics for Nurses. The report offers nine recommendations in areas concerning the workforce, education, leadership, well-being, and emergency preparedness and response that are critical in strengthening nursing in the country and improving health equity.
The report is critical in the nursing profession. It prepares nurses to take up roles in community, acute, and public health settings. Such roles include being a clinician, an educator, a care coordinator, a researcher or scientist, a policymaker, an informaticist, and an administrator. Nurses, comprising the largest segment of the health workforce, should be supported, strengthened, and transformed to take up multiple roles to ensure all citizens have access to quality health care regardless of their defining demographic characteristics.

Week 10 Discussion Rebuttal
Thank you for your reply, Christian. National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine provides independent, unbiased advice to cause progress in advancing science, engineering, and medicine for the advantage of society (National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine 2021). Its reports are regarded as credible and valuable because of the institution’s status for providing autonomous, objective, and unbiased advice with higher technical and scientific quality standards. I agree with you that it explores a report on achieving health equity in the nation via strengthening nursing capacity and knowledge. This report is critical in the nursing profession because in addition to preparing nurses to take up roles in the community, acute, and in the public health settings, it as well sightsees how nurses may work to cut the health disparities and endorse equity, whereas keeping the costs at bay, using technology, and sustaining family and patient-focused care to 2030. This done, the nurses then have a chance to ensure that all citizens have access to quality healthcare that is their key goal.
