During this challenging time of the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic, the Louisiana Action Coalition would like to express great appreciation to all healthcare professionals that are serving on the frontlines and caring for those that are being severely impacted by this pandemic.
We are in the first quarter of one of the greatest celebrations and acknowledgements of nurses in the world, “The Year of the Nurse and Midwife”, a year that we honor Florence Nightingale on her 200th Birthday, and it seems almost surreal that our frontline nurses around the world are facing one of the most challenging healthcare pandemics of our time.
While many citizens have the privilege of working remotely, this is not an option for our nurses and healthcare providers that are working on the frontlines. The Louisiana Action Coalition is deeply grateful for the dedication, sacrifice and bravery you commit to our families and communities to help us stay healthy and well.
The Louisiana Action Coalition is keeping you and your families in our thoughts and prayers while hoping the COVID-19 pandemic ends quickly. We are very proud of each of you and we know you will prevail.
With sincere thanks and great appreciation,
The Louisiana Action Coalition Core Leadership Team
The Louisiana Action Coalition.
The Louisiana Action Coalition was formed in response to the call to action prompted by the Institute of Medicine’s 2010 report, “The Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health,” which provides a blueprint for transforming the nursing profession to improve health care and meet the needs of diverse populations. Nationally, the Campaign for Action is led by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and AARP.
the Louisiana Action Coalition is working to develop strategic partnerships to expand educational opportunities for all nurses.
