Foundation For Nursing Excellence
June 28, 2011
The NC Foundation for Nursing Excellence has promoted and led highly significant initiatives to improve the health of NC residents and model innovation for other states and the US through enhancing the role that nurses can play in health care. Most recently, the Foundation organized efforts to host a summit attended by many stakeholder groups to discuss how NC will respond to a recently published IOM report on nursing. This outstanding event led to additional discussions and beginning plans to increase nurses' roles in health care delivery including health promotion. Other initiatives of the Foundation are advancing the educational levels of nurses and facilitating coordinated efforts across nursing education within the state to improve access and programming. This organization is a model of integrity and effectiveness in a critical area!

Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Assure that more health providers, analysts, policy makers and regulators were very familiar with what the Foundation has done and its potential to do more!
