Welcome to the Rhode Island Action Coalition (RIAC)
for the Future of Nursing

We are leading the transformation of health care through advancing nursing education and practice, and empowering nursing leadership. We are creating a Culture of Health in Rhode Island, using the Institute of Medicine Report, The Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health as a blueprint for action. 



We are proud to be a member of the national Nurses on Boards Coalition. If you are a nurse serving on a board, go to the website to let the coalition know about your service, and become a part of the national network of nurse leaders.

The Coalition's goal is to improve the health of communities and the nation through the service of nurses on boards and other bodies. All boards benefit from the unique perspective of nurses to achieve the goals of improved health and efficient and effective health care systems at the local, state and national levels. Learn more about this effort and the Nurses on Boards Coalition here.
