The Leadership Workgroup identified the need for 3 Action Sub-Committees to assist with meeting this objective. The team utilized Wiki Space and Conference Calls to further develop this initiative. Nurses on Boards
Led by Chelsea Savage Action Committee # 1 developed a list of boards that nurses should be serving on. The Leadership Workgroup identified that priority boards should fall into the categories of Advocacy, Community, and Policy. The board will be posted on the VAC and VNA websites. Action Sub-Committee #1
Led by Thelma Roach-Serry Action Committee #2 developed a survey to identify nurses currently serving on boards, to determine the boards they serve on, and if they are interested in mentoring others. The survey also asked nurses not currently serving on boards if they were interested in board mentorship, what type of board they were interested in serving on, and why. 342 Participants 281 Completed the Nurses on Boards Survey Action Sub-Committee #2
