To support the national Future of Nursing: Campaign for Action’s efforts to place nurses on governing boards, the New Jersey Action Coalition is seeking nurses to take part in an online survey.
The voluntary survey is geared toward LPNs, RNs and APNs in New Jersey who are sitting on boards, according to an NJAC news release.
The survey, which will take an estimated 10 minutes, will collect baseline data on the numbers and types of boards nurses are sitting on throughout the state.
Available online via Survey Monkey, the survey seeks information about nurses’ participation on any type of governing, civic/community, school or other board. The responses, according to the release, will be collected and used to identify the level of need for increasing the number of nurses on boards throughout the state.
Late last year, a coalition of 21 national nursing organizations announced a goal of placing 10,000 nurses on boards throughout the country by 2020. The NJAC said it strongly supports the effort, according to the release, to increase nurse leadership opportunities.
