NCSBN Launches New Website
Director, Marketing & Communications
Chicago – NCSBN has launched a new website ncsbn.org in honor of its 40th anniversary and rebranding of the organization.
NCSBN’s previous website, which hosted more than 19.3 million page views annually, was completely redesigned to enhance usability for its visitors. The new site improves the user experience of members, nurse candidates and the nursing workforce as well as the general public and those with interests in licensure policy.
Visitors to the new site will continue to be able to easily access the most pertinent information available on nursing regulation, NCLEX and the Nurse Licensure Compact but also now utilize advanced search and filtering options allowing them to find the most essential resources for their needs more efficiently. Additionally, the new site features a revamped and enriched Resources section that includes: courses, publications, research study articles, toolkits, websites, event presentations and videos.
“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,” comments NCSBN CEO David Benton, RGN, PhD, 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 to all of those who visit our new website.”
NCSBN marks its 40th anniversary milestone in 2018 with the inspiring theme of “Regulatory Excellence Surging Toward the Future.” Founded March 15, 1978, as an independent not-for-profit organization, NCSBN was initially created to lessen the burdens of state governments and bring together boards of nursing (BONs) to act and counsel together on matters of common interest. It has evolved into one of the leading voices of regulation across the world.
NCSBN’s membership is comprised of the BONs in the 50 states, the District of Columbia, and four U.S. territories — American Samoa, Guam, Northern Mariana Islands and the Virgin Islands. There are also 30 associate members that are either nursing regulatory bodies or empowered regulatory authorities from other countries or territories.
NCSBN Member Boards protect the public by ensuring that safe and competent nursing care is provided by licensed nurses. These BONs regulate more than 4.8 million licensed nurses.
Mission: NCSBN provides education, service and research through collaborative leadership to promote evidence-based regulatory excellence for patient safety and public protection.
The statements and opinions expressed are those of NCSBN and not the individual member state or territorial boards of nursing.
