The Institute of Medicine report, The Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health, released in October 2010 created a blueprint for nurses to contribute to improving the quality of healthcare through the design and improvement of public and institutional policies at the national, state, and local levels. With the report as a framework, The Campaign for Action was created. This initiative is supported by AARP, the AARP Foundation and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF), to ensure all Americans have access to high-quality care, with nurses contributing to the full extent of their capabilities.

Based on broad and diverse community letters of support and partnerships, the Hawai‘i Action Coalition was selected as an Action Coalition in 2011. The Hawai‘i Action Coalition is co-lead by the Hawai‘i State Center for Nursing, University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa School of Nursing and Prime Care Services Hawai‘i, Inc.
