The Center to Champion Nursing in America (CCNA), an initiative of AARP Foundation, AARP and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, was established in 2007 to ensure all Americans have a highly skilled nurse when and where they need one. CCNA runs a national campaign with the goal that everyone in America can live a healthier life, supported by nurses as essential partners in providing care and promoting health equity and well-being.
The center coordinates the Future of Nursing: Campaign for Action, a nationwide initiative to transform health care through nursing.
