Boards of Nursing


Boards of Nursing are jurisdictional governmental agencies that have been formed in 50 states, the District of Columbia and four US territories. These agencies are responsible for the regulation of nursing practice and help protect the public’s health and welfare by being a watchdog for safe practice. 

BONs outline the standards for safe nursing care and issue license to practice nursing. As part of ongoing efforts, the board’s monitor licensees’ compliance to jurisdictional laws and take action against the licenses of those nurses who have exhibited unsafe nursing practice.
