The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine in their report “The Future of Nursing 2020-2030: Charting a Path to Achieve Health Equity,” highlight the critical role that nurses play and will continue to play to help the nation attain better health for its population, including reducing costs and emphasizing primary care (Hassmiller, 2021). The report presents eight practical strategies that the nursing profession can employ to advance health equity. The purpose of this paper is to discuss the work of the academies, the role of state-based coalitions, especially in Florida, to help nurses attain health equity. Work of National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine In this work and report, the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine worked with different stakeholders to examine the current trends in care provision and the need for stakeholders to develop strategies to help the nation attain health equity. The work of the Committee on the Future of Nursing 2020-2030 considered the critical role of nurses, especially in the backdrop of the unimaginable situations of the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic, and trends that will inform care delivery over the decade ahead. The committee developed the report after the Institute of Medicine’s 2010 report that demonstrated the critical need for nurses to prepare to meet the rising care demand among the diverse population (Hassmiller, 2021). The report develops eight strategies that will help prepare and train a nursing workforce to offer care, promote health and wellness among nurses, individuals, and communities as well as address the systemic inequities which continue to fuel wide and persistent disparities in health. The report notes that building on strengthened nursing capacity and expertise will help nurses create and contribute effectively to equitable health and health care systems which can work for all people. The work of the committee emphasizes the critical role of the nursing profession in addressing the complex work of attaining alignment in public health, health care, and social services as well as public policies aimed at elimination of health disparities and attainment of health equity.
