In November 2013, the National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN) received the designation of American National Standards Institute (ANSI) Accredited Standards Developer Organization. In support of NCSBN’s mission, this designation is for the purpose of developing and promoting increased recognition and voluntary adoption of standards of excellence in the regulation of nursing practice through nurse licensure and competency assessment throughout the U.S. and its territories.
NCSBN's Standard's Development Committee (SDC) has developed a standard for criminal background checks for nurse licensure and is asking for public comment about this standard from January 22, 2015 through March 5, 2015.
You may access the standard by going to ncsbn.org/standards-development.htm.
