Nurses on Boards Count, So Sign Up and Be Counted


Are you a nurse who serves on a corporate or nonprofit board, committee, panel, commission, or another decision-making entity? If so, the Nurses on Boards Coalition (NOBC) wants you to raise your hand.

The coalition is working to ensure that at least 10,000 board seats are occupied by nurses by the end of 2020. All boards can benefit from a nurse’s unique perspective, and when nurse voices are present, these boards can start to improve the quality of health and health care at the local, state, and national levels.

If you haven’t already, visit the NOBC website to have your board membership recognized and counted. Or, if you already registered with NOBC and need to add board service, please log in to update your record.

Scrubs Magazine is committed to helping the NOBC work toward its goal, and we’re hoping they’ll reach it well before the end of 2020. Look for more stories about the NOBC initiative in the coming year, including profiles of nurses currently serving on boards, listings of board service opportunities, and practical advice for any nurse or nursing student who wants to get involved with a board in their community.


This article is part of our ongoing partnership with the Nurses on Boards Coalition (NOBC), formed to improve the nation’s health through the service of nurses on boards, commissions, and other decision-making entities. They want at least 10,000 board seats in 2020. Scrubs Magazine is committed to helping NOBC meet this goal by informing, educating, and inspiring nurses and nursing students to take on leadership roles at all levels. Find out more at
