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.

“Foley & Lardner LLP is a national law firm representing many of the nation’s largest hospitals and health systems coast-to-coast. Our clients are for-profit and not-for-profit, secular and religious-affiliated, public and private. But one thing with which all of our clients struggle is guaranteeing talented and committed leadership on their governing bodies. Finding board members who are able to bring the “4 Ws” (work, wisdom, weight, and wealth) and who understand the complexities of the ever-changing health care delivery system is no easy task. Add to that the increasing expectations and burdens on board members, and you can understand the challenge is getting more acute. That’s why we are proud to support and be a strategic partner to the NOBC. Nurses are key and valued members of our clients’ workforce. Nurses are fundamental caregivers and they have unique perspectives on the needs and opportunities for care improvement within many health care organizations. We hope that as the NOBC succeeds, then our clients will be better-served and our communities will have more robust and informed governance over their essential health care providers.”
