Massachusetts faces pressing health care challenges: an aging, more diverse population, more chronic conditions, rising costs, more people insured, and a shortage of providers. The MA Action Coalition (MAAC) is providing leadership to solve these challenges by maximizing the role of nurses, the largest segment of the state’s health care workforce. Through innovations in practice and nursing education, we are working to improve outcomes and transform the health care system for every resident of the Commonwealth.
As one of nine Action Coalitions included in the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s Academic Progression in Nursing (APIN) initiative, we’re working to advance state and regional strategies aimed at creating a more highly educated, diverse nursing workforce. Learn about our APIN work here.
