Next Steps

Timeframe for Action 

1.  Community Engagement





Educating / Engaging the Public





§  Nursing representation at local events - establish a health Fair at local mall and focus on preventative health (BIP screening) and nurse role




Sharon Groschwitz












§  Use the media as a means to inform the community about the need for nurses/nursing services (like the Johnson & Johnson commercials)




Pam Lindgren, RN












§  Community engagement through: videos - nurses in action; ads on the bus going around town; ads at the Tinsletown theater before the movie starts; nurses telling their stories; educate the community about what it means to the patient about not having an RN there to take care of them! Get out to high schools or grade school to talk to students about going into nursing. Create a hotline and "Adopt-A-Nurse" program




Karen Allen 












§  Community engagement and ownership: County commissioners and mayor need to be on board and speak from TV weekly forum on nursing shortage including personal stories of nurses. The same education in Tribune - weekly (i.e., "Don't do meth, not even once." - Change to "Hire a nurse, more than one." The tribune can do stories written by patients about "An Amazing Nurse" advertising on a billboard or bus: "The Nursing Shortage, what can you do?" CALL LINE

§  Community awareness of crisis at hand through engagement of chambers, Rotary, Soroptomist clubs and units of government. N/N















§  Community sponsorship of nurse appreciation day. N/N















§  Develop video for PSA














§  Community engagement & ownership for education: Hold a world cafe on this topic. Invite 1-2 people form each hospital, school of nursing and other medical practices for this. This would be done by members of this world cafe group.
