Culture of Health
The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation framework for advancing health in America is woven into our work.
A Culture of Health places well-being at the center of every aspect of life. The movement came about as an answer to one key question: What can we do to achieve the best health possible in this country? The answers are in four interconnected areas.
Making health a shared value
Fostering cross-sector collaboration
Creating healthier, more equitable communities
Strengthening integration of health services and systems
The outcome: improved population health, well-being, and equity. The emphasis on well-being and equity as key aspects of good health can mean greater potential for collaboration with many community partners, and stronger ties with workforce centers.

The Institute of Medicine has released several key reports and findings that inform our work.
In 2010, The Institute of Medicine first issued The Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health. It is a report that details recommendations for the nursing profession for meeting the needs of an aging and increasingly diverse population, within an ever changing complex health care system. The report examines how roles, responsibilities and education for nurses should change to accomplish this. The goal is to improve health care for all Americans across the lifespan with a well prepared nursing workforce.

Campaign for Action
The Campaign for Action supports the work of the Michigan Action Coalition on a National Level
The Campaign for Action was created through support from AARP Foundation and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. Their vision is to ensure that everyone in America can live a healthier life, supported by a system in which nurses are essential partners in providing care and promoting health. Their goals are based on recommendations from the IOM Future of Nursing Report.
The work is carried out by Action Coalitions in all 50 states and Washington DC, and is led by the Center to Champion Nursing in America (CCNA).
