Johns Hopkins School of Nursing Advisory Board

Promoting the Johns Hopkins School of Nursing’s goals and missions is of the utmost importance to making an impact on nursing, both locally and globally. The Nursing Advisory Board (NAB) does just that—advocating for the interests of the school to make it one of the best learning centers in the world. The NAB serves as a source of advice and support to the Dean and brings diverse insights and expertise to bear on issues critical to the global success of the Johns Hopkins School of Nursing.
