During this difficult time, we at HealthImpact want to express our deepest gratitude to the nurses, physicians, and other healthcare professionals who are on the front lines in the battle against the COVID-19 virus.
In the best of times we are grateful for the extraordinary care, compassion and dedication they provide to ensure the health of our families, neighbors and communities.

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced universities and colleges to cancel student nurse clinical rotations and mandate online-only instruction. Without completing this requisite, student nurses risk failing to graduate. This will have a significant impact on the workforce and institutions that rely on these graduates to fill vacancies.
So, in today’s terms, what is a nurse?
Today’s generation of nurses are making a big difference for patients, communities, and our national health care environment. Nurses focus on promoting, protecting, and optimizing the health and well-being of their patients through direct patient care, science, and health policy.
We are pleased to share our new brochure highlighting The HealthImpact Difference.
For the past 18 years, HealthImpact has brought together leaders in nursing, academia, and policy to ensure that nursing stays ahead of the changes in the profession.
Based on findings from a survey and focus groups of educators, nurses, and employers, this report offers educational institutions evidenced-based recommendations to prepare RNs for the primary care of the future, with a particular focus on addressing the social determinants of health and caring for patients as part of interprofessional teams.
