Population Health in Nursing Survey

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) and the Center to Champion Nursing in America (CCNA), an initiative of AARP Foundation, AARP and RWJF, have launched a new project to identify and disseminate promising models that incorporate and strengthen population health into nursing education curricula. This work is built, in part, on the recently published RWJF report, Catalysts for Change: Harnessing the Power of Nurses to Build Population Health in the 21st Century.

To launch the effort, Susan B. Hassmiller, PhD, RN, FAAN, senior advisor for nursing at RWJF and director of the Future of Nursing: Campaign for Action, notified Tri-Council for Nursing member organizations that their members may be contacted for a survey or interviewed. The survey focuses on nursing and other professions that influence nursing curriculum, including public health, social work and medicine. Questions focus on competencies, content areas and skills for nurses. AARP’s Research Center will analyze the findings.
