Activity is moving along in CA regarding progress towards implementing the recommendations in the IOM's report on the Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health. The California Institute for Nursing & Health Care (CINHC) has become the structural home for the CA Action Coalition - similiar to the model at the national level in which AARP houses the Center to Champion Nursing in America which is leading the campaign at the national level. This change will hopefully strengthen the work of the CA Action Coalition and increase the visibility of the work being done around the 8 recommendations from the IOM report. The Executive Committee of the CA Action Coalition will continue to guide this work both strategically and programatically, however, the partnership with CINHC is intended to assist the very necessary effort of funding these initiatives.
There are also many opportunities to be involved in the activities of the CA Action Coalition, to include becoming a Regional Champion for the work being done. If you would be interested in pursuing this or other opportunities further, there is an on-line application at http://www.ucdmc.ucdavis.edu/nursing...tion_Coalition.
