Strategic Plan 2017-2020

National Overview:  We at the Campaign for Action are transforming health and health care through nursing, and building a healthier America. Backed by AARP Foundation, AARP, and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the Future of Nursing: Campaign for Action is working in every state to mobilize nurses, health providers, consumers, educators, and businesses to strengthen nursing on multiple fronts. Our goals are based on recommendations from the Institute of Medicine’s Future of Nursing report.


The Future of Nursing West Virginia serves as the driving force for transforming the culture of health and health care through nursing in our state. The Action Coalition’s vision is for all West Virginians to have access to high-quality, person-centered care where nurses lead change to advance health. The mission is advancing IOM recommendations while being inclusive of diverse nursing and non-nursing individuals and organizations.


Overall Goals: 


1.  Serve as a coalition whereby co-sponsoring organizations (WVNA, WVONE, and WVHA) and strategic partners (CFN, ADDNE) will work collectively to support the healthcare workforce to advance health for West Virginians.


 2.  Implement strategies to fully implement all IOM recommendations in WV by 2020.


3.  Assure fiscal responsibility and stewardship for funding sources (sponsoring organizations, organizational and individual members, grants, product revenues, and donations)


4.  Actively address workforce analysis, planning, and strategies for the healthcare workforce in the state of WV.
