Nursing Advisory Council

The Spok Nursing Advisory Council (NAC) was formed in 2017 and consists of members representing a range of nurse leadership roles and nursing specialties. The NAC was designed to advance communication technology specifically for nurses—the clinicians at the front lines of care delivery. The council meets to enhance inter-professional practice and the delivery of patient and family-centered care.
