In 2010, the Institute of Medicine (IOM) Committee on the Future of Nursing released a report called The Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health. The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation subsequently established the Campaign for Action as a national initiative to guide implementation of the recommendations in the IOM report. The Campaign is coordinated through the Center to Champion Nursing in America, an initiative of AARP, the AARP Foundation, and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
Healthforce researchers have supported the Campaign through research on the IOM recommendations and by tracking progress toward implementing them. Healthforce developed and updates the dashboard indicators to track progress and has conducted several studies that highlight the importance of the IOM’s recommendations.
