RWJF Renews Commitment to Future of Nursing

on Dec 8, 2015 10:00:00 AM

 

Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) has renewed its commitment to the Future of Nursing: Campaign for Action Initiative with a new round of grants after its initial five-year partnership with the AARP Foundation and state-based action coalitions. RWJF has announced that the Vermont Action Coalition is receiving a second two-year grant through the Future of Nursing State Implementation Program (SIP). The Vermont Action Coalition, acting on the recommendations of the Institute of Medicine (2010) and the Vermont Blue Ribbon Commission on Nursing (2012), seeks to improve the health of Vermonters by fully engaging Vermont nurses in our evolving health care system.

In preparation for this next phase of work, Marketing Partners will be helping to create new messages, a website and a direct-to-RN outreach campaign so Vermont nurses are aware of the multiple education pathways and supports available to them. Our work will help the Foundation and the Vermont Action Coalition to achieve the Institute of Medicine (IOM)'s recommendation that 80 percent of the nursing workforce has a baccalaureate in nursing degree (BS or BSN) by 2022.

Bird-Friendly Maple Program Launched for Audubon Vermont

on Oct 7, 2015 10:30:00 AM

 

We're thrilled that after two years of research and planning, the Bird-Friendly Maple Habitat program materials we developed are available for participating producers to begin using this fall. Audubon Vermont has partnered with the Vermont Maple Sugarmakers' Association and the State of Vermont to develop standards and conduct field audits for producers wishing to participate.

Why

While maple syrup can look and taste the same, it can come from forests that are managed in dramatically different ways. Park-like maple monocultures may look tidy and increase sap production over the short-term, but they support relatively low numbers of birds and bird species. These same forests are also less likely to be able to respond to the stresses of insect outbreaks, disease or a changing climate.
