Future of Nursing: Campaign for Action

A powerful force for healthier communities and a healthier nation.

As the largest segment of the nation's health workforce, nurses are critical to building a Culture of Health.

A joint initiative of AARP and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF), the Future of Nursing: Campaign for Action envisions a health care system where nurses contribute to the full extent of their capabilities.

The Campaign's work is focused on the following issue areas: improving access to care, interprofessional collaboration, nursing leadership, nursing education, nursing workforce data, diversity in nursing, and building healthier communities.

These areas are based on recommendations in the landmark Institute of Medicine report The Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health. Related to each area, the Campaign is working in every state to mobilize nurses, health providers, consumers, educators, and businesses to strengthen nursing on multiple fronts.
