John Rother is a long-time executive vice president for policy and strategy at AARP. In a recent speech, he outlined AARP’s interest in championing nursing, noting that nurses are essential for transforming health care delivery in ways that emphasize health promotion, wellness, chronic care management, and care coordination. AARP takes positions on issues that affect their members–millions of Americans aged 55 years and older. It knows that access to affordable, quality, equitable, safe care is a priority for its members and nurses are key to making that priority a reality.
