The National Council States Boards of Nursing (NCSBN) is a not-for-profit organization whose membership includes the nursing regulatory bodies in the 50 U.S. states, the District of Columbia, four U.S. territories, 9 Canadian Provinces, and 27 international jurisdictions. Our mission empowers and supports nursing regulators in their mandate to protect the public. NCSBN promotes leadership, excellence and innovation in addressing local and global regulatory and healthcare challenges through strategic alliances and partnership with its members and other organizations, both public and private.
NCSBN is engaged in a transformative process to better support its strategic direction and initiatives focusing on its mission to empower and support nursing regulators in their mandate to protect the public. The building blocks of achieving NCSBN’s vision of leading regulatory excellence are encapsulated in the following four focusing concepts:
•Performance Measures and Metrics
•Data and Technology
These focusing concepts require NCSBN to gain and maintain individuals with key skills related to communication, change management, performance management, quality improvement, policy, board development, strategic partnering, data analytics, and economics.
