Nurses on Boards: The Time for Change is Now
In today’s metrics-driven, pay-for-performance environment, the need for accountability and increased customer satisfaction has made it difficult for health care organizations to achieve their missions. However, with the help of trained nurse leaders in their boardrooms, especially those holding advanced degrees such as BSN, health care systems can become much more effective at achieving their goals.
This whitepaper, written by Capella University in collaboration with The Nurses on Boards Coalition (NOBC), explores how nurses can lead change at the board level, and what the NOBC is doing to support this effort. With perspectives from respected leaders in the nursing profession, readers will understand the importance of having nurse leaders on boards, and actions needed to make the vision of improving health care systems a reality.
