About the Future of Nursing Initiative

The Arizona Foundation for the Future of Nursing (AzFFN) has secured a grant from The Foundation of the National Student Nurses’ Association. The grant will utilize input from nurses all over Arizona to help identify high-priority nursing workforce and practice issues that will impact the work of Arizona nurses in the next 5-10 years. The outcomes of this grant will drive innovative solutions such as pilot programs, demonstration projects and possible legislation. The Arizona Nurses Association (AzNA) is pleased to provide the support for this significant initiative.

Currently we are looking for insight and feedback from direct care nurses, educators and administrators. Each 90-minute virtual focus group session is real-time and interactive using an advanced web platform and voice conference call. You can participate from anywhere you can access a computer. Our partner, the Advanced Strategy Center in Scottsdale, has significant expertise in conducting these sessions.
