In her paper "Redesigning Health Care Delivery," Karlene Kerfoot described changes in health care delivery systems and emphasized the role of nurses in redesigning health care delivery. Mary Ann Parsons spoke of how serious experimentation with curriculum begins only after a significant number of leaders have accepted the new beliefs underpinning reform. Joellen Edwards reviewed selected education and practice models. Gloria R. Smith explored the nursing educator's challenges in the new system of integrated health care. Patsy Turner reviewed some of the predicted changes in nursing and urged associate degree educators to use the predictions in preparing the future nursing workforce. Linda C. Hodges focused on current and future needs for nurses who have completed doctoral programs. Barbara R. Heller examined the following trends transforming nursing education and higher education at the end of the 20th century: (1) continuing turbulence in the health care delivery system; (2) shifting nursing student and patient demographics; (3) the explosion of instructional and clinical technology; and (4) the globalization of health care.
