Profiles of Member Boards, a publication of NCSBN, provides an overview of the regulatory environment in which boards of nursing function in the U.S. and the four U.S territories.
In 2014, the NCSBN Member Board Profiles Committee was tasked with reviewing and updating the Member Board Profile surveys. The updated surveys were distributed to the 59 Member Boards in late 2014. Data from those surveys was compiled in six reports. The information contained in the reports is subject to change in the intervening time between survey of the NCSBN membership. Specific verification of state data should be completed via comparison with the state nurse practice act and regulations or contacting the state board of nursing.
