COVID-19 Update from the Nurse-Led COVID Vaccine Confidence Project

The National Nurse-Led Care Consortium (NNCC) is convening a Vaccine Confidence Advisory Committee (VCAC) comprised of members and stakeholders with knowledge of public health, nursing, and safety net healthcare. NNCC will regularly engage this committee to inform and support CDC in the development and adaptation of COVID vaccine guidance, tools, and best practices that consider the needs of nurses working in community settings with vulnerable populations.

We are no longer accepting applications for this committee. Please check our website for other opportunities.
