Tennessee Action Coalition


THE STATE OF TENNESSEE faces many health and health care related challenges. We have an aging and more diverse population, more people with chronic conditions, and soaring costs, but we have a shortage of primary care providers, especially in certain areas of the state. These challenges require a unique strategy in order to improve health outcomes for the population and we think that nurses can help to address these issues.  

The Tennessee Action Coalition aims to be the driving force for the transformation of health care through nursing in our state and we can’t do it alone. We need support from individuals and organizations, nurses and nurse champions, all working together alongside the Tennessee Action Coalition to create a brighter future for Tennesseans. Contact us today to see how you can get involved in the future of our great state.

Registered Nurse Involvement on Boards Survey

We need your help! The Tennessee Action Coalition is participating in an initiative to place 10,000 nurses on boards around the country by 2020. To understand Tennessee’s contribution to the 2020 goal, your input is needed to create a database to ascertain baseline participation on boards by Tennessee nurses. The database will establish whom already serve on boards and the kind of boards nurses serve on. To complete this survey, please click HERE
