5 Action Coalitions (ACs) are the driving force of the Future of Nursing: Campaign for Action (CFA), national effort to implement the Institute of Medicine’s (IOM) recommendations. The Campaign is a collaboration created by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) and the AARP Foundation. The Campaign is building action at the local, state, and regional levels, to support a transformed health care workforce in which nurses contribute as essential partners in system-wide transformation. ACs will capture best practices, determine research needs, track lessons learned and identify replicable models. With assistance from the Center to Champion Nursing in America (CCNA) and RWJF, RACs are developing and implementing unique sets of regional goals and campaigns within the framework of the IOM recommendations.

13 Education Evidence Studies show association between higher nurse education level and improved health care outcomes. Evidence that higher proportions of BSN-prepared nurses associated with lower rates of medication errors, mortality, and failure to rescue. Research also shows that BSN-prepared nurses have stronger diagnostic skills and are better at evaluating interventions. A growing body of research shows a connection between baccalaureate education and lower mortality rates. Advancing Education
