Lorie Brown, R.N., M.N., J.D. interviews Kathleen Russell, J.D., M.N., R.N., Senior Policy Advisor, Nursing Regulation of the National Counsel of State Boards of Nursing. Some of the topics include their mission and members, their new Welcome to the Nursing Profession Booklet and video, the nurses’ license and discipline database, Nursys.com, and the e-Notify service as well as the continuing education courses they provide on www.LearningExt.com.
The e-Notify service will notify you in advance when your license(s) need to be renewed and if any disciplinary action has been filed against your license(s). This is a great option for any nurses that are licensed in multiple states.
They also discuss the full practice authority initiative for Advance Practice Nurses – nurse practitioners, nurse midwives, clinical nurse specialists and nurse anesthetists – at the website: www.NursingAmerica.org.
Ms. Russell also introduces their brand new website at www.NCSBN.org and invites all nurses to check out all of their resources.
