Johns Hopkins School of Nursing Advisory Board

The mission of the Nursing Advisory Board (NAB) is to provide counsel and support to the Dean and leadership of the Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing to further the school’s mission and goals.

Since its inception, the NAB has played a critical role supporting the mission of the Johns Hopkins School of Nursing. NAB members receive a front seat to the pressing issues and opportunities concerning the future of health; their voice is essential in advising the Dean. They engage in meaningful dialogue with experts and world renowned faculty, and contribute diverse opinions and perspectives that help advance the School of Nursing.
