The National Nurse-Led Care Consortium (NNCC) supports nurse-led care and nurses at the front lines of care. Because of their education and their community connections, advanced practice nurses today are able to deliver high quality and cost-effective services to our most vulnerable populations, the poor and the uninsured. Our member health clinics, run by nurse practitioners, demonstrate this by providing community-based care that is sensitive to patient needs and concerns. NNCC works to help member health clinics meet the costs of providing care to the uninsured and underinsured. NNCC provides expertise to support comprehensive, community-based primary care. Comprehensive primary care goes beyond a provider visit. NNCC takes the lead in developing and running community programs, in partnership with member clinics, which help people lead healthier and safer lives. These programs help avert future health problems and keep healthcare costs from rising further.
To advance nurse-led health care through policy, consultation, and programs to reduce health disparities and meet people’s primary care and wellness needs.
