American Academy of Nursing Designates Eleven Innovative Models as Edge Runners

Nurse-Designed Models of Care Selected for Recognition at the 2022 Health Policy Conference


The American Academy of Nursing (Academy) has selected eleven novel models of care to be named Academy Edge Runners. Edge Runners are evidence-based, nurse-designed, innovative models of care or interventions with significant, demonstrated outcomes to improve health, impact cost, and influence policy. Each of these programs highlights nurses’ ingenuity and collaboration in developing new methods to provide care and promote health equity. ACNM would like to congratulate our Board of Director member, Jessica Anderson on this accomplishment!

“The Academy is proud to designate these unique and timely programs as Edge Runners. The diverse focus of these models highlights the wide range of services, vital support, and team-based approaches that the nursing profession provides,” said Academy President Kenneth White, PhD, AGACNP, ACHPN, FACHE, FAAN. “In particular, these models highlight nurses as innovative change agents who improve care and equity in our health systems.”

All of the Academy Edge Runner profiles are available to view here. The program leads for each of these innovative models of care will be honored at the 2022 Health Policy Conference, taking place October 27-29, 2022 in Washington, DC.
