‚ÄčNurses have a unique knowledge of and ties to the consumer, family, and community. Their valuable perspective needs to be a part of decision-making throughout the community–in health facilities, schools, businesses, city planning projects, and wherever ideas are turned into actions that affect the public and the community’s health. That’s why the Campaign helped found the Nurses on Boards Coalition, which represents national nursing and other organizations and whose goal is to see that 10,000 nurses are on boards by the year 2020.
