Every nursing community needs a board of nursing! Members that sit on the Mighty Nurse Board of Nursing will lend a hand in empowering all of our Mighty Nurses. They will provide support by answering questions in the ‘Ask the Board’ forum, voting as a group for contest winners, being a voice in the community and driving user interaction. Each board member will sit for 6 months and thereafter have the choice to renew their position or open it up to another member of Mighty Nurse.
