Leap into Leadership: Feb 29 – Mar 4

February 29, 2016 / admin / 0 Comments /

In 2010, the Institute of Medicine released a landmark report, The Future of
Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health, which recommended increasing
the number of nurse leaders in pivotal decision-making roles on boards and
commissions that work to improve the health of everyone in America. The
Nurses on Boards Coalition (NOBC) was created in response to this, as a
way to help recruit and engage nurses to step into leadership roles.

The NOBC represents nursing and other organizations working to build
healthier communities in America by increasing nurses’ presence on
corporate, health-related, and other boards, panels, and commissions. The
coalition’s goal is to help ensure that at least 10,000 nurses are on boards
by 2020, as well as raise awareness that all boards would benefit from the
unique perspective of nurses to achieve the goals of improved health in the
United States.

We encourage each and every one of you, over 3 million strong, to visit
www.nursesonboardscoalition.org, sign up to be counted if you are on a
board and read more about the efforts being made to help build the future
of our profession.
