In our Featured Story, Mary Therriault, MS, RN shares how preparing for board service (long before she knew she would be on a board) helped her imagine all the possibilities awaiting her at the board table. And finally, take advantage of the amazing opportunity to access access corporate boards: join Diligent and Equilar through NOBC!
“Board service can be rewarding to nurses both personally and professionally. It not only requires them to exercise leadership; it expands those skills and advances their capabilities and knowledge. It gives nurses the chance to meet people and enhance their professional networks. And it can be inspirational and empowering.” -Sue Hassmiller, PhD, RN, FAAN, Robert Wood Johnson Foundation
The Nurses on Boards Coalition (NOBC) represents national 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.
