In 2024, the Future of Nursing: Campaign for Action sharpened the focus of its dashboard to two main areas of work: improving consumer access to care and diversifying nursing at all levels so it reflects the U.S. population. The dashboard is a series of graphs and charts the Campaign uses to evaluate its efforts to implement recommendations from the National Academy of Medicine report, The Future of Nursing 2020-2030: Charting a Path to Achieve Health Equity. The updated dashboard contains metrics on state practice environment for nurse practitioners, and the diversity of nursing graduates, nursing workforce, and nursing faculty and deans.

Below are our updated measures. A PDF the full dashboard slides can be viewed by clicking the “Download” button below.
