“The Nurses on Boards Coalition (NOBC) has been a powerful partnership for WEA Trust. When we became aware of this effort, we immediately saw the importance of having experienced nurse leaders on our board and how their backgrounds would complement our conviction to keep health plan members safe.
The selection process was seamless, beginning with NOBC truly understanding our goals and needs as a company and then vetting top candidates for our consideration. The matching and selection of candidates is a key function and asset of partnering with NOBC.
As we think about the larger challenges of health care, we understand how valuable it is when you bring nurses and their extraordinary wealth of information to the conversation—impacting and creating critical healthcare change in the industry. Our partnership with NOBC has enhanced our board representation and ultimately, the decisions we make as a company. “ – Dr. Tim Bartholow, CEO and Board Chair of WEA Trust
“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.
