The Nurses On Boards Coalition (NOBC) is deeply grateful and proud of nurses all across the country for their dedication, service and sacrifice during the COVID-19 pandemic. We honor all nurses, medical professionals, staff and volunteers serving on the frontlines and those supporting them behind the scenes in their local communities. NOBC is committed and available to support our members, partners, nurses and community members. Please contact us at if we can help you in any way. Especially now, we thank you for your interest, support and engagement in support of our mission. We hope you and those you hold close are protected, safe and healthy in the coming days.

“The last twenty years or so, Truman Medical Centers has had an employee representative on its Board. Frequently those employees selected were nurses. Without exception, nursing representatives on the Board proved to be invaluable. They were not so much an advocate for nursing but they advocated for the needs of patients. As the Board focused on matters of care quality – the voice of nursing was both critical and creditable.”
