Congratulations New Mexico for Your Statewide Academic Progression in Nursing Initiative!
We are thrilled that the success of the statewide New Mexico Nursing Education Consortium (NMNEC) was announced at a news conference called by Governor Susana Martinez last week in Albuquerque. Although NMNEC began in December 2009, we came to know them and their work in March 2011 when they applied and were accepted as an Action Coalition with the Campaign for Action at the Center to Champion Nursing (CCNA). When the Learning Collaborative on Advancing Education Transformation was launched in spring and summer 2011 with a regional webinar series where academic progression took center stage, New Mexico was a key presenter. They continued their work with a presentation and participation in a regional meeting in February 2012 in Sacramento, California. Their active participation with CCNA and support of other Action Coalitions across the country helped others learn from their work and also accelerated their own progress. When they were awarded Academic Progression in Nursing (APIN) funding in late 2012, they were fully poised to take advantage of this amazing opportunity and continue their path to success. Congratulations, New Mexico! We look forward to continuing our work together as we advance the important work of academic progression in nursing.
