California continues to move forward with the Future of Nursing: Campaign for Action initiatives within the state, and in so doing is also providing leadership to other Action Coalitions around the country. Twenty one new Action Coalitions were just announced (Arkansas, Delaware, Georgia, Hawaii, Kentucky, Kansas, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Texas, West Virginia, Wisconsin, Wyoming), and that brings the number of Action Coalitions nationally to 36.
California Action Coalition has established a Vision, Mission and Core Values for their work, in addition to a logo to make the Action Coalition's work immediately identifiable. These are critical steps in supporting the work of the California Action Coalition to address the increased demands for care by utilizing all the skills, talents, knowledge and experience of nurses. The new logo is: "CALIFORNIA ACTION COALITION: Advancing Health in California". This logo will now be visible in all communication from the California Action Coalition and will assist public and professional audiences in connecting with the on-going work of the Coalition.
The Vision of the California Action Coalition is "Partnerships to advance health in California", and the Mission is "Advancing nurse's leadership and service in California". The Core Values adopted by the group are:
"Engaging broad and diverse perspectives"
"Increasing and using influence"
"Strategic and efficient use of resources"
"Improved health outcomes"
The above values, mission and vision statements will be important tools to keep the groups working with the eight recommendations focused on the important activities that have the highest value return for meeting the health care needs of Californians.
