Our nation needs more nurses on boards – Alabama Nursing Board Defense Lawyer – Call Today! – (866) 348-2889
Nurses are in the perfect position to serve on a variety of boards, especially in healthcare.
Our voices are important because of our education and experience across many healthcare settings and specialties, as well as consistently being named the most honest and trustworthy profession by the American public. It was with these beliefs in mind — and a lot of hard work — the Nurses on Boards Coalition was born.
In 2010, the landmark Institute of Medicine report, “The Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health,” made clear in one of its recommendations that nurses must have an increased number of seats and have decision-making roles on various boards and commissions working on improving healthcare in America.
