PA-AC is part of the Campaign for Action, a national initiative of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and AARP, coordinated by the Center to Champion Nursing in America.

PA-AC works to promote a healthy Pennsylvania through improvements in the quality, accessibility and safety of nursing. PA-AC aims to achieve its goals by building strategic partnerships throughout the state. The coalition comprises a diverse group of local, regional and state-level stakeholders. These include individuals and organizations from health care systems, academic institutions, nursing leadership organizations, businesses, community organizations and anyone involved in advancing health care through nursing in Pennsylvania.
