APN Survey 2015

The New Jersey Collaborating Center for Nursing has been contracted by the Nurse Practitioner Healthcare Foundation (NPHF) and the New Jersey Health Care Quality Institute (NJHCQI) to conduct a needs assessment on entrepreneurship, practice management, and business skills of APNs in New Jersey. This assessment is part of a project that is looking at building New Jersey’s Primary Care Safety Net, particularly in underserved areas of the State. The survey will identify the education and resources needed to help APNs develop and implement nurse-led practices, and what on-going resource support is needed to sustain these practices over time. Information gleaned from this survey will be used to develop educational programs and practice resources that will directly benefit APN practice and drive practice innovation in the State. All reports will be presented in aggregate. Results of the survey will be made available on the NJCCN website. http://www.njccn.org.

The link to the survey is listed below, July 10th will be the last day to take the survey.


Transforming Health Care through Nurse Leadership

Leadership is key to transforming health. Nurses taking a lead in crafting healthcare reform is one of the key recommendations from the IOM (2011) Future of Nursing Leading Change, Advancing Health report. Learn in this video about why it is important and see New Jersey’s breakthrough leader: Dr. Maria Lo Grippo , in the video developed by the Center to Champion Nursing in America.



Leadership is one of the key pillars for the New Jersey Action Coalition. A survey is being distributed asking you to identify if you are currently on a board of any kind. We want to get a count of NJ nurses engagement. A link for the survey can be found on our website. The goal nationally is 10,000 nurses by 2020. Join in and be counted!!!
