Ingenovis Health Unveils Innovative Chief Nurse Advisory Board

The interdisciplinary board includes distinguished nurse leaders from across the U.S.

GREENWOOD VILLAGE, Colo.--()--Ingenovis Health, a leading healthcare talent provider, has announced its new interdisciplinary Chief Nurse Advisory Board (CNAB), designed to leverage collective expertise from across the healthcare industry. The Board’s development comes in response to the ongoing need to foster an environment in which clinicians can thrive amid the daily challenges encountered in a post-pandemic world.

“We are committed to listening and understanding how the environment has changed for clinicians and healthcare systems nationwide, and working together to attract, retain, prepare and support the talent needed to provide quality patient care in all circumstances,” said Ingenovis Health CEO Bart Valdez. “Collaborating with this esteemed board for solutions addressing critical issues in healthcare delivery, including the nursing shortage, is our objective, and we look forward to leading this charge for change.”

The inaugural board is chaired by Ingenovis Health Senior Vice President of Clinician Advocacy, Robin Geiger, DNP, MSN, FNP-BC, NEA-BC, and brings together highly regarded industry thought leaders from some of the country’s most notable healthcare institutions. Through active cooperation and open communication, the CNAB will share best practices to identify real-world remedies for issues such as recruiting and retaining nurses and mitigating violence in the workplace.

“Every member of this board is passionate about creating change across healthcare and making a real difference in the lives of our clinician workforce,” said Dr. Geiger. “While the concept of an advisory board is not new, by adding interdisciplinary members we will provide a more global lens as we work together to keep clinicians engaged and thriving in collaborative environments and ensure the efficient and reliable delivery of care.”

The members of the CNAB represent leading healthcare and educational institutions across the U.S.; 2023-2024 board members include:
