National Database of Licensed Nurses Makes Tracking Workforce Issues Easier
From 1990 through 1997, the Council of State Boards of Nursing developed the Nursing Information System, a database of detailed information on licensed nurses nationwide.
During the grant period, the Council accomplished the following:
- Developed policies regarding use, access and security of data.
- Developed the software necessary to collect, store and release the data.
- Developed a business plan that would make the database financially self-sustaining.
