Advancing Education Transformation

Major changes in the U.S. health care system require equally profound changes in the education of nurses. We must improve the nursing education system to ensure that all nurses are prepared to deliver safe, quality, patient-centered care across all settings.

After extensive grassroots outreach, the Campaign for Action has identified four promising models with potential to accelerate education progression efforts nationwide. We will continue to promote these nursing education models identified by nurse leaders representing Action Coalitions across the country. This activity includes cultivating a learning collaborative on nursing education through in-person meetings, online community building, deployment of expert consultants, and in other ways connecting Action Coalitions with one another and with experts. The learning collaborative engages both community colleges and the business community (to include employers of nurses) to communicate the value of highly educated and trained nurses.
