Founding Partners are any organization, business, academic institution, or group who wants to be recognized as part of the strategic alliance focused on achieving the Institue of Medicine (IOM) Future of Nursing recommendations to advance the health of New Yorkers through nursing. They are committed to assisting in the achievement of one or more of the IOM report recommendations in New York through collaboration with other coalition partners and the NYSAC leadership groups, and they provide feedback about their activities to the Action Coalition to strengthen network-building in support of the goals.
Founding Partners can also participate in the New York State Action Coalition as a sponsor or funder. Sponsors and funders are entities that commit financial support toward the NYSAC.
