New Mexico Action Coalition

The New Mexico Action Coalition strives to provide strategic direction through community collaboration and grassroots efforts with key stakeholders to transform the health of New Mexico

Every New Mexican deserves an exceptional nurse when and where they need nursing care.  The NM Action coalition is a true coalition of organizations and individuals whose passion drives the advancement of nursing as a strong ally and partner to improve health in the state. 

The New Mexico Action Coalition has been convened by the Future of Nursing: Campaign for Action, a collaboration created by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the AARP Foundation.


Work at the state level to implement the recommendations of the Institute of Medicine’s report "The Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health”.

The Future of Nursing: Campaign for Action

Action Coalitions are the driving force of the campaign at the local and state levels, forming a strong, connected grassroots network of diverse stakeholders working to transform health care through nursing.  Backed by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and AARP, the Campaign for Action is driven by evidence-based recommendations from the Institute of Medicine.
