Building Healthier Communities

Nurses help lead the effort to see that everyone lives the healthiest life possible.


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.

As the Campaign for Action comes to better understand how its successes and contributions are helping build a Culture of Health, progress is being measured in the four areas that together support people’s well-being and a community’s health: creating more equitable communities; fostering cross-sector collaboration; making health a shared value; and strengthening the integration of health services and systems.
