  • CINHC’s mission and vision Within the framework of the insufficient response to the nurse shortage looming in front of us, a group of nurse leaders from across the state, and from different setting, drawn together with their common concern about a lack of progress and planning about the shortage, created CINHC. They felt the need to have an organization that could: a) facilitate the development of a comprehensive and strategically driven nursing workforce plan, b) provide a forum that could bring diverse groups of stakeholders together to address nursing issues with statewide implications c) and could focus on increasing the contribution that nurses make to improving health outcomes and increasing access to care. Sunset of CSPCN….learnings to build upon It was also apparent to the founding nurse leaders that a coalition of stakeholders beyond the nursing community needed to be built to make a difference that would positively impact the health of Californians. These stakeholders include not only healthcare providers, but also purchasers and payers, consumer groups, educators, labor unions, politicians and policy makers.
