Where Can You Get More Information on the Board of Nursing?

The National Council of State Boards of Nursing maintains a database of each state's board of nursing, accessible online at NCSBN.org. Contact information listed for each state's board of nursing includes the board's website. Each website contains information specific to that board, including composition, duties and programs offered.

Other contact information available in the NCSNB database include each board's location, mailing address and telephone and fax numbers, as well as the name of the public contact person, if one has been designated. The website of the Texas State Board of Nursing, for example, BON.State.TX.US, includes biographies of board members, reports and data, information regarding the issuance or renewal of a nursing license and applicable state regulations. Information regarding the history of the board and the complaint process is also available.
