Nursing Administration Quarterly: January/March 2021 - Volume 45 - Issue 1 - p 35-45 doi: 10.1097/NAQ.0000000000000451 Buy Metrics Abstract When the Institute of Medicine released its report, commonly known as the Future of Nursing report, every state was challenged to take on the work of implementing the 8 recommendations. The Texas Team Action Coalition achieved measurable results in many areas; however, sustainability of efforts was challenging due to the volunteer nature of the work. As Robert Wood Johnson Foundation's focus shifted from Advancing Health Through Nursing to Building a Culture of Health for All, the Texas Team sought to realign its work accordingly. This article details initiatives of the Texas Team over the past 10 years and describes current efforts to position itself to champion anticipated recommendations from the 2020-2030 Future of Nursing report from the National Academy of Medicine. © 2021 Wolters Kluwer Health, Inc.
