Nurses on Board Coalition--IDAHO EXCEEDS GOAL--
The goal of the Nurses on Boards Coalition, which was an outcome of the 2010 IOM Report on the Future of Nursing was to get 10,000 nurses serving on boards nationally. Each state had goals to attain, and over the past years Idaho had fallen behind in attaining its goal. In 2019 the Idaho Center for Nursing made an effort to increase reporting and meet or exceed the goal.
WE DID IT....thanks to all of the nurses who reported.
To summarize Nation-wide progress as of April 9, 2020:
- 17,664 individuals registered
- 7,308 counting boards
- 11,639 nurses want to serve
- 3,650 nurses already on boards who are interested in serving on an additional board
To summarize the state of Idaho progress as of March 30, 2020:
- Total Board Service: 128
- Board Service & Want to Serve: 50
- Want to Serve: 52
- Counting Board Service: 98
The original goal for Idaho was 55, so with 98 boards counted, Idaho has reached 178% of its 55 nurses on boards goal. In the November 2019 report, Idaho was at 58% with 32 counting boards. Congratulations on exceeding your goal! Impressive progress!
