The Foundation is engaged in several partnerships to advance nursing practice and address health care workforce issues.  We are one of four leadership organizations of the NH Action Coalition to implement recommendations of the national “Future of Nursing” Campaign for Action.  This effort builds upon the 2010 Institute of Medicine report to transform the nursing profession to improve health care.  Information from our work and links to work we are currently engaged are located here.
