The Vermont Action Coalition, acting on the recommendations of the Institute of Medicine (2010) and the Vermont Blue Ribbon Commission on Nursing (2012), seeks to fully engage Vermont nurses in our evolving health care system. By understanding specific health care challenges and needs, nurses are working with diverse stakeholders to create innovative solutions.

Campaign goals:

1. Increase the proportion of nurses with baccalaureate in nursing degrees (BS or BSN) to 80% by 2022.

2. Develop and evaluate an educational program for nurse practitioners interested in establishing independent NP practices.

3. Develop and evaluate an Interprofessional Practice program in the home health setting.
