In the fall of 2018, the NBCSN board of directors met to review, update, enhance and elevate the existing strategic plan to include three to five strategic priorities (anchors) that are not likely to change even when the goals, objectives, and tactics may be updated. Based on this plan, the board selected the following as key strategic anchors for NBCSN and its future.

STRATEGIC PRIORITY #1: PROFESSIONAL CERTIFICATION

STRATEGIC PRIORITY #2: POWER THROUGH KNOWLEDGE
OBJECTIVE: Move governance model from active to strategic to create an environment that will advance NBCSN’s mission, vision, and strategic plan.

STRATEGIC PRIORITY #3: PROMOTION OF SPECIALTY
OBJECTIVE: The NBCSN focuses key stakeholders to increase awareness to promote school nursing certification.
