Welcome to the State of Pennsylvania Nurses Lounge! 

This Lounge provides a place for nursing news and info from around the state.

As a follower of the Pennsylvania Nurses Lounge please feel free to post news and events and/or ask and give an answer to questions.

The Pennsylvania Action Coalition (PA-AC) is a statewide coalition of nursing and non-nursing stakeholders endorsed by the Campaign for Action: Future of Nursing (a joint-initiative of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and AARP).

PA-AC works to promote a healthy Pennsylvania through improvements in the quality, accessibility, and safety of nursing. These advances are the result of implementation of recommendations presented by the Institute of Medicine's (IOM)Future of Nursing report and through strategic partnerships throughout the state.

The coalition is comprised of a diverse group of local, regional, and state-level stakeholders. These include individuals and organizations from healthcare facilities, academic institutions, nursing leadership organizations, for-profit organizations, non-profit organizations, and those generally interested in advancing nursing education and practice in the state of Pennsylvania.
