State Boards of Nursing are the government agencies that are responsible for the regulation of nursing practice within the state. The primary role of a board of nursing is to protect the public's health and welfare by overseeing and ensuring the safe practice of nursing. This is accomplished by establishing standards for safe nursing care and issuing licenses to qualified individuals to practice nursing. The Boards responsibilities do not stop with the issuance of a license. The Board is also accountable for the monitoring of a licensees' compliance with state guidelines, regulations and laws and taking appropriate and immediate action against the licenses of any nurse who has exhibited unsafe nursing practices.
