Why Put a Nurse on Your Nonprofit Board?

Nonprofit Colleagues, when you have a vacancy on your Board of Directors, think about a nurse for that position. Why?

Here are a few qualities RNs bring to the table:

  • Ethics & Integrity

            Nurses are voted #1 most respected and ethical profession. (Gallup Poll 15 yrs.)

  • Problem Solving/Critical Thinking

            Nurses are problem solvers and critical thinkers who use a systems perspective to assess situations and offer comprehensive solutions.

  • Budgeting & Staffing

            Nurses at all levels of administration know how to manage budgets and staff and are attuned to the effectiveness of their budget.

  • Results Oriented/Accountable

            Nursing is an evidence based profession that uses measurement and outcome data for decision making. Nurses work hard to get the job done under pressure and done right.

  • Team Players

            Nurses work well with others while communicating value for each team member

  • Health Promoters  

            Nurses are knowledgeable about the social determinants of health and how to promote the health of individuals, families and communities.

To strengthen the health of your organization, put a nurse on your board!
