About Us

Nurses for a Healthier Tomorrow (NHT) is a coalition of 43 nursing and health care organizations working together to wage a communications campaign to attract people to the nursing profession.


The nation is facing a potentially dangerous nursing shortage. The risk of a major nursing shortage is both short and long-term, and is more serious in some geographic areas than others. Rather than wait until the problem is severe and patients are at risk, NHT is working now to heighten awareness about the looming nursing shortage and the excellent opportunities that await those who seek a career in nursing.
