About Nevada Action Coalition

Background & History

The Nevada Action Coalition is part of the Future of Nursing: Campaign for Action, a nationwide movement to improve health and health care through nursing. An initiative of AARP and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the Campaign includes Action Coalitions in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.
