Goal and Impact
Good health is the sum of many factors: environment, income levels, education, and more. Nurses, who are familiar and trusted stewards of good health in schools, workplaces, public health facilities, hospitals, and other community settings, are vital to realizing the vision of a Culture of Health. Nurse leaders expanded their plans in summer 2016.
Everyone deserves to live the healthiest life possible. A nation that puts well-being at the center of every aspect of life will allow individuals to thrive and communities to flourish.
