The mission of the NYSAC is to facilitate and provide leadership for the implementation of the eight recommendations set forth in the IOM report within New York State.
The vision of the NYSAC is that all New Yorkers will have improved experiences of health care, higher levels of health and lower health care costs.
All people deserve better healthcare. As the largest group of health care providers, nurses are key to achieving these goals.
1. Remove scope-of-practice barriers so that advanced practice nurses can practice to the full extent of their education and training.
2. Increase the proportion of nurses with a baccalaureate degree to 80 percent by 2020.
3. Increase the diversity of students to create a workforce prepared to meet the demands of diverse populations across the lifespan.
4. Prepare and enable nurses to lead change to advance health by assuming leadership positions across all levels of public, private and governmental programs.
