New Name!

Tue September 1, 2015

We’ve got a new name.
As the California Institute for Nursing and Health Care, we developed strong, diverse coalitions and served as a forum for collaborating, building and sharing what works. Now it’s time for our name to reflect that impact.

In this time of rapid change in health care, HealthImpact has become more agile and responsive. We continue to collaborate with a wide range of partners, designing and creating practical solutions to better prepare nurses for the day-to-day challenges they face, especially as health care moves from traditional settings to team-based care in the community.
