A project team of nurse leaders convened to consider the emerging role of the community health worker, nationally and in Nebraska. Work products included an inventory of community health worker projects in Nebraska; a policy cross-walk to illuminate national and Nebraska policy developments; and a bibliography of useful resources regarding community health worker training, role expectations, and policies. The team employed a dialectic approach to arrive at consensus recommendations regarding the development of the community health worker role. The project team developed a set of ten consensus recommendations reflecting nursing expertise and inputs into the development of the community health worker role in a transforming health system. The team also developed recommendations for the Future of Nursing – Nebraska Action Coalition.
