Nursing Advisory Council (NAC)

Meeting minutes are available below for logged-in council members

As a thought leader on the future of nursing, NAC provides strategic solutions applicable across the continuum of care. This council serves as an advocate, resource and guidepost for the changes  needed to sustain health care’s economic viability, productivity and positive outcomes for our society. 

The committee charge is as follows:

Expand the role as the voice for nursing and patient advocacy in Southern California and in the state as a whole, ensuring that issues and opportunities for change are brought to the table and acted upon by regulatory agencies, legislators and health care associations.

Influence local and regional policy decisions relevant to nursing as well as help ensure media coverage that promotes awareness and understanding of the critical factors affecting the nursing profession today.

Develop future NAC representatives at all levels of leadership who understand and share a deep commitment to the nursing profession and to NAC’s mission and vision.

Provide the best and most accessible information to the media, researchers, policymakers, and the public regarding the nursing mission, trends shaping the nursing profession, emerging jobs and best practice programs.
