What is MT CAHN

MT CAHN is the official state action coalition of the Future of Nursing: Campaign for Action; it was formed by state coalition co-leads Casey Blumenthal, Vice President, MHA...An Association of Montana Health Care Providers and Cynthia Gustafson, Executive Director of the Montana Board of Nursing.

The Montana Center to Advance Health through Nursing (MT CAHN) was formed in response to the October 2010 Institute of Medicine report, The Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health.

The IOM report's recommendations are being brought to life through the work of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) and AARP Center to Champion Nursing's Initiative on the Future of Nursing, which formed the current Future of Nursing:  Campaign for Action.  MT CAHN was named an official state Action Coalition for this initiative in September, 2011.
