Learning Collaboratives

The Future of Nursing: Campaign for Action hosts regularly scheduled learning collaboratives, which are opportunities for Action Coalitions to learn and share knowledge about priority issues with each other, subject matter experts and Campaign stakeholders. Learning collaboratives may be conducted via teleconference, webinar, or as face-to-face meetings. Currently, we have three learning collaboratives, described below.

The Access to Care Learning Collaborative

Campaign for Action staff, stakeholders, Action Coalitions, and AARP state offices shares resources and tactics to remove legislative and regulatory barriers to advanced practice registered nurse practice and care. Participation is by invitation only. Calls are not recorded. Meeting notes are distributed after the call.

Frequency: First Monday of the month, 3 – 4 p.m. ET

The Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) Learning Collaborative for Diversifying the Nursing Workforce

The learning collaborative meets virtually each month and includes representatives from all 29 HBCU Baccalaureate of Science in Nursing programs and their associated Action Coalitions. These meetings allow the Campaign and a stakeholder in this work, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Minority Health, to offer technical assistance, peer-to-peer engagement and coaching on how best to implement mentoring programs to help improve retention and graduation rates for minority nursing students and increase first-time pass rates on the NCLEX.

Frequency: Second Tuesday of the month, 1 – 2 p.m. ET

The Native American Nursing Learning Collaborative (NANLC)

The learning collaborative highlights the strengths of traditional and cultural health values of Native Americans, and positions Native American nurses as leaders in building a Culture of Health and health equity, through quarterly webinar discussions with Action Coalitions, Campaign stakeholders, AARP state offices and subject matter experts. The NANLC is co-hosted by AARP’s Multicultural Leadership team and the National Alaska Native American Indian Nurses Association (NANAINA).
