About us

Nurse Advisory Council (NAC)

The NAC is a group of national nursing leaders that gives direction to the March of Dimes education program and provides guidance on nursing activities, nursing grand rounds and graduate nursing scholarships. It meets annually to review existing programs, suggest new directions and establish nursing networking opportunities. NAC subcommittees convene as necessary throughout the year to address critical issues and evaluate the effectiveness of current March of Dimes nursing activities.
