New NCSBN Website
Nursing board alliance rebrands
To commemorate its 40th anniversary, the National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN) has rolled out a new logo and a snazzy redesigned website.
Founded in 1978, the NCSBN is a nonprofit organization of boards of nursing from all 50 states, the District of Columbia and several U.S. territories, joined by associate members from dozens of other nations. The organization’s mission is “to promote evidence-based regulatory excellence for patient safety and public protection.” Earlier this year, the NCSBN introduced a new logo intended to represent the organization’s global reach. Now, the NCSBN website has undergone a major overhaul for greater ease of use and quicker access to information.
The NCSBN website, www.ncsbn.org, provides an abundance of resources, including statistics on nurse licensure, information on the NCLEX exam and the latest updates on the NCSBN’s Consensus Model for APRN regulation and interstate Nurse Licensure Compact initiative (of which California is not yet a part).
There are also links to recent NCSBN research, some of which is published in the organization’s scholarly journal, the Journal of Nursing Regulation, published for the NCSBN by Elsevier.
“As part of our 40th birthday celebration, we are extremely pleased to be able to offer this invaluable resource to the public, nursing community and our peer organizations,” says NCSBN CEO David Benton, RGN, Ph.D., FFNF, FRCN, FAAN. “It is our desire to continually strive to present the most current information about nursing regulation and the NCLEX examinations in the most accessible and user-friendly manner.”
