Nurse Attends To Her Patient, AARP Public Policy Institute, Champion Nursing Center


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, advanced by equity-minded nurses as essential and valued 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.
