Welcome to the Georgia Nursing Leadership Coalition (GNLC)

We are Georgia's Action Coalition, dedicated to advancing nursing in Georgia according to the Institute of Medicine's recommendations in the 2010 Future of Nursing report. We are dedicated to the values of leadership, collaboration and diversity.

GNLC HIGHLIGHTS:

Hot off the presses! 

Save the date

The National Forum of State Nursing Workforce Centers is hosting its annual conference June 7-9 in Denver. It is the second time they are partnering with Peter Buerhaus and his research group - it's an amazing conference for healthcare workforce and policy discussions (mostly nursing, of course) - and promises to be especially interesting this year because they lined up speakers thinking that we would have a lot to discuss based on the current political situation.
