As the largest subset of health care workers, nurses are critical to America’s healthcare system. Nurses protect, promote, and optimize the health of their patients by preventing illness and injury, facilitating healing, and alleviating suffering. Nurses are role models, educators, and advocates. The well-being of nurses is fundamental to the health of our nation.
The Healthy Nurse, Healthy Nation™ Grand Challenge (HNHN GC), is a social movement designed to transform the health of the nation by improving the health of the nation’s 3.6 million registered nurses.
