Tennessee Action Coalition

The Tennessee Action Coalition was created in early 2012 through a collaboration of AARP-Tennessee and the University of Tennessee-Knoxville College of Nursing. The two partners were selected by the Future of Nursing Campaign for Action coordinated through the Center to Champion Nursing in America (CCNA) to advance the Future of Nursing recommendations regarding nursing education, leadership, and practice. CCNA is an initiative of AARP, the AARP Foundation, and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.



The state of Tennessee faces many challenges and needs related to health and health care. We have an aging and more diverse population, more people with chronic conditions, and soaring costs. More Tennesseans will soon gain health care coverage but we have a shortage of primary care providers, especially in certain areas of the state. Nurses can help to address these challenges. However we must better prepare nurses and deploy them effectively to meet the health care demands of today and tomorrow. The Tennessee Action Coalition aims to be the driving force for the transformation of health care through nursing in our state.
