The San Diego Eye Bank® Nurses' Advisory Board

The San Diego Eye Bank® Nurses' Advisory Board (NAB) was established in 1990 by leaders within the nursing community. The board now includes hospital administrators, social workers, chaplains, a bereavement specialist, and decedent affairs staff. Board members are liaisons between their healthcare facilities and the San Diego Eye Bank®. It is the board’s mission to help meet the needs of the San Diego Eye Bank® for its recipients and to provide educational programs for San Diego-area healthcare providers.

To learn more about our facility and the services we provide, or to inquire about becoming a member of the nurses' advisory board, contact the San Diego Eye Bank®.

Promoting Eye Donation Awareness and Education

The goal of the San Diego Eye Bank® Nurses’ Advisory Board is accomplished by organizing and sponsoring education programs for the healthcare community and addressing informed consent and hospital regulatory issues regarding donation. NAB promotes programs on eye donation for their respective healthcare facilities.

The San Diego Eye Bank® Nurses' Advisory Board is proud to address the needs of healthcare professionals, and the families they serve, by making a difference in helping promote the Gift of Sight to those in need.
