The Nursing Advisory Board (NAB) is a group of prominent and engaged leaders from Philadelphia and the region who partner with the Department of Nursing to provide the highest quality education to our students and meet the needs of the community we serve together. The primary purpose of the board is to provide counsel on matters affecting the vitality of Temple Nursing and its stakeholders, help advance the mission of Temple Nursing and the health and well-being of the communities we serve and assure that the voice of the community informs all department matters and decisions.
