About

The Nursing Community Coalition includes 62 members that are the cross section of education, practice, research, and regulation within the nursing profession. We believe that the healthcare delivery system should be one that promotes wellness, advances research through scientific discovery, and provides timely access to care across the continuum. With over four million licensed Registered Nurses (RNs), Advanced Practice Registered Nurses (APRNs), and nursing students, the profession embodies the drive and passion to continually improve care for patients, families, and communities.

 

Core Principles

The Nursing Community Coalition supports the following core principles:

 

  • A robust and diverse nursing workforce is essential to the health of all Americans.

  • Nurses are an integral part of the healthcare team, are involved in every aspect of care, and are committed to the patient, their families, and the community.

  • The contributions made by the practice and science of nursing are critical to the delivery of high quality, life-saving, preventive, and palliative health care across all care settings, geographic areas, and social determinants of health.

  • The services RNs and APRNs provide are linked directly to the availability, cost, and quality of healthcare services.

  • Affordable, accessible, high quality health care, and improved health outcomes depends upon a model of care that is patient-centered and comprehensive. This can only be achieved through the full complement of expertise gained from broad-based, inter-professional partnerships of all health professionals

  • Nursing involvement is essential to the development of all aspects of the new healthcare information technology infrastructure. Nursing data are key to identifying patient outcomes and required improvements in the delivery of patient care.
