The American Nurses Association (ANA) is pleased to be a founding member of the Nurses on Boards Coalition, a group of national nursing organizations working together to increase nurses’ presence on corporate and non-profit health-related boards of directors throughout the country.

The coalition will implement a national strategy to bring nurses’ valuable perspective to governing boards, as well as state-level and national commissions, with an interest in health. The goal is to put 10,000 nurses on boards by the year 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 roles on boards and commissions in improving the health of all Americans.

The effort is 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.
