Overview

Nurse on Board: Planning Your Path to the Boardroom / Edition 1

The nurse's voice is essential and critical to the governance of healthcare organizations. After all, nurses represent the largest professional group in healthcare, account for the greatest human resources expense, and-most importantly-are closest to patients and their families, physicians, and the community. But why do nurses hold only a small fraction of positions on healthcare boards? It's time that NURSES get on boards! With years of board leadership to her credit, author Connie Curran expertly provides the tools you need to attain and succeed in your first board role-or advance into ever-greater board responsibilities. Nurse on Board skillfully guides readers by sharing: - Best practices, data, and advice from seasoned board leaders - Explanations of different types of boards, how they work, and the required skills and experiences - How boards recruit new members and how you can best position yourself as a candidate - How to develop, nurture, and leverage your personal and professional networks to ensure you are on the radar screen when board roles become available
