Nursing, as a profession, is called to lead change and advance health (Institute of Medicine [IOM], 2010). To meet this challenge, nurses must practice a commitment to lifelong learning. Lifelong learning is the notion that learning occurs along a continuum, from elementary and secondary education to undergraduate and graduate education, lasting through the end of one's career (IOM, 2009). Learning occurs in a variety of methods and across multiple settings including, but not limited to, undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral education, self-study, formal and informal continuing education, and other types of learning.
