The Nurses on Boards Coalition will implement a national strategy aimed at bringing nurses’ valuable perspective to governing boards and national and state commissions with an interest in health. The goal is to advance at least 10,000 nurses on boards by 2020. The effort is a direct response to the Institute of Medicine’s (IOM) report, The Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health (2011), which recommended nurses play more pivotal decision-making roles on boards and commissions in improving the health of all Americans.
The effort was initially supported by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and AARP as part of their collaborative effort to implement the recommendations of the IOM report through the Future of Nursing: Campaign for Action.
