Greetings and Welcome to The Future of Nursing 2030 Action Hub,

In early June of 2021, the Future of Nursing: Campaign for Action took a first step towards realizing the vision outlined in the National Academy of Medicine’s (NAM) new report, The Future of Nursing 2020 – 2030: Charting a Path to Achieve Health Equity.

We hosted a virtual summit with 200 key opinion leaders, experts, and change makers across the fields of health care, nursing, business, academia, social justice and more. They broke out into 28 teams to workshop each of the report’s 54 sub-recommendations (under its nine major recommendations), answering questions including, What multi-sector partnerships are needed to implement this recommendation? and What milestones or benchmarks will tell us we’ve succeeded? The result was 54 Draft Action Plans, each with specific tasks, timelines, and goals, that can guide how nursing will help transform health, health care and health equity for all.

We are sharing these as examples of how each of the report’s recommendations could be addressed – and eventually put into practice. You can find them all below, along with the report itself, a summary of the nine overarching recommendations, and some downloadable tools to help bring more people into this process.

Because above all, we want you and your organizations to take ownership in bringing the report’s vision to life. We hope you will read a  recommendation and find ways to make it your own and move it forward.

Thank you for your commitment to nursing and health equity for all.

Sincerely,

Susan Hassmiller, PhD, RN, FAAN Susan Reinhard, PhD, RN, FAAN
