The American Academy of Nursing has set as one of its three strategic goals to position nurses as leaders through appointments to a federal, state, or national organization’s board, commission, or council. Service Opportunities are posted on their website.
The Nurses on Boards Coalition has been working diligently in order to reach our goal of having at 10,000 nurses on boards by 2020. You are encouraged to take advantage of the “opportunity to serve” by applying for governing boards, commissions, and task forces that align with your passion and goals. The attached list provides Governor’s Office Contact Information for each state. If you apply for a vacant position, please email NOBC to let us know. Hope to hear from you soon!
The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) is seeking nominations for new members to serve on its Health Workforce National Advisory Committees. The five committees advise the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and Congress on health workforce policies and programs. They accept nominations on a continuous basis and consider them as vacancies occur on each committee. You may nominate yourself or others. Professional associations and organizations may also nominate qualified candidates.
HRSA appoints members to advisory committees based on their competence, interest, and knowledge of the mission of the profession. Learn more about the five committees, including the dates and times of the meetings.
