The Nebraska Action Coalition (NAC) is a finalist for the State Implementation Program (SIP) grant through RWJF! We were interviewed on 11/6 and will be submitting an addendum with more highly defined strategies to move education and leadership forward in Nebraska based on evidence. The grant funds will help sustain the NAC over the next 2 years to carry out our education, practice and leadership initiatives. We will be notified in mid January. The Exec Committee created our vision statement at our fall retreat meeting in October: Transforming leadership. Best practices. Quality healthcare.
We have developed a cool pocket guide with the NAC vision, mission, elevator speech, talking points, contact info, scan code, and FB and Twitter info. Should be sending out in December.
As part of the Nebraska Action Coalition – Future of Nursing’s initiative we want Nebraska nurses to see themselves as leaders from the bedside to the boardroom. Below are opportunities to help you on your journey:
- NAC’s Leadership Module on link at left
- ANA Leadership Institute http://ana-capella-webinars.eventbrite.com/
The NAC greatly appreciates donations in the past month from:
- Jean Farnam- Omaha $30
- Steph Burge – Kearney $100
- Methodist Hospital $1000
