Future of Nursing New York State

How can Nurses contribute better care, better health, and lower costs for New Yorkers?

The New York State Action Coalition (NYSAC) Advancing Health through Nursing believes all New Yoakers deserve better care, better health, and lower costs associated with healthcare.  NYSAC also believes nurses - the largest group of healthcare providers in the State - are key to achieving these goals in New York.  NYSAC is enthusiastic about the potential of achieving the Institute of Medicine (IOM) Future of Nursing report goals, established in 2010, to transform nursing and healthcare in New York.

NYSAC has joined the National Campaign for Action, which envisions a nation where every American has access to high-quality, patient-centered care in a healthcare system where nurses contribute as essential partners in achieving success.  The complexity of the ever-changing healthcare environment requires even more nurses in practice, with advanced credentials and expertise.  In many settings, nurses are not able to work to the full extent of their education and training and too few hold leadership positions.

NYSAC, as a state coalition, is an active participant in the Campaign for Action and seeks to further the long time efforts of many nurse leaders and organizations and actively engage a wide range of healthcare providers; consumer leaders, prominent officials, and groups representing government, business, academia, and philanthropy.

What is Campaign for Action?

 

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, in collaboration with AARP, initiated the Future of Nursing - NYS Action Coalition in late 2010.  The initiative builds on the Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health - a landmark Institute of Medicine (IOM) report that provided a blueprint for transforming the nursing profession to improve healthcare and meet the needs of diverse populations.  For more information about the IOM report, please go to http://www.nysactioncoalition.com/#!iom-report/c1toy.

Campaign for Action envisions a nation where every American has access to high-quality, patient-centerd care in a healthcare system where nurses contribute as essential partners in achieving success.  To learn more about the Campaign for Action in New York, please visit http://campaignforaction.org/state/new-york or email newactioncoalition@gmail.com.
