The importance of the recent Institute of Medicine Report on nursing cannot be overstated. Nurses must be delegates at the table in discussion about the future of health care in the United States and in the world. Nurses bring the perspective of health to the table, encompassing prevention, treatment, symptom management, nutrition and clean water, environment, and a safe and dignified beginning and ending to life. Cancer care nursing is part of that important delegation.
