The Arizona Action Coalition (AZAC) was established in March 2012 for the purpose of guiding implementation of the recommendations from the Institute of Medicine's (IOM) Future of Nursing report in Arizona. The IOM report provides a blueprint for transforming the nursing profession to improve health care and meet needs of diverse populations. The AZAC has been working with the Center to Champion Nursing in America (CCNA) to address challenges facing nursing. CCNA is a partnership between the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and AARP.
