We all have interesting stories to share about our journey in nursing. Dr. Angela Patterson, the Chief Nurse Practitioner Officer of CVS MinuteClinic and Vice President of CVS Health knew from a young age that she wanted to be a nurse. Her career has evolved through the years, with transitions from medical/surgical nursing to later becoming a family practice nurse practitioner and co-owning a family medical practice, to her current role at CVS, as well as chairing the board for a charter high school for underprivileged high school students who wish to go into nursing. Dr. Patterson has great advice for nurses to get involved with board membership. She describes resources such as the Nurses on Boards Coalition, Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society of Nursing and the Future of Nursing: Campaign for Action. She also reminds us that, as nurses, we have inherent skills, qualities, and traits for board membership.
