About Us

nurse practitioner The Pennsylvania Action Coalition was established in 2011 to promote a healthy Pennsylvania through improvements in the quality, accessibility, and safety of nursing. We do this by implementing the evidence-based recommendations in the Institute of Medicine’s (now the National Academy of Medicine) Future of Nursing report.

We aim to achieve our goals by building strategic partnerships throughout the Commonwealth with local, regional, and statewide stakeholders. These partners include individuals and organizations: healthcare systems, academic institutions, nursing leadership organizations, businesses, community organizations, unions, and anyone involved in advancing healthcare through nursing in Pennsylvania.

The Pennsylvania Action Coalition is a part of the Campaign for Action, a national initiative coordinated by the Center to Champion Nursing in America.
