NCSBN's website hosts more than 4.5 million visits a year; 12 percent of all visits are with a mobile device. This represents 192 percent increase in such visits over the last year. Regardless of the platform used, NCSBN is committed to providing the best possible website visitor experience and that goal moved the organization to accommodate the needs of mobile users with this new site.

NCSBN's mobile website is specifically designed to increase accessibility to users on the go with an easy to browse and simple layout, which utilizes mobile user experience design best practices. With an eye toward maximizing the mobile user experience, m.ncsbn.org features the most popular content from the site, including NCLEX® Exams, Nurse Licensure Compact, Nurse License Verification and Board of Nursing contact details.

In the future geo-location services will also be available. Ultimately, a single site that will be responsive to both desktop and mobile screen sizes will be developed, eliminating the need for a separate mobile version.

Founded March 15, 1978, as an independent not-for profit organization, NCSBN was created to lessen the burdens of state governments and bring together boards of nursing (BONs) to act and counsel together on matters of common interest. NCSBN's membership is comprised of the BONs in the 50 states, the District of Columbia, and four U.S. territories -- American Samoa, Guam, Northern Mariana Islands and the Virgin Islands. There are also 12 associate members that are either nursing regulatory bodies or empowered regulatory authorities from other countries or territories.

NCSBN Member Boards protect the public by ensuring that safe and competent nursing care is provided by licensed nurses. These BONs regulate more than 3 million licensed nurses, the second largest group of licensed professionals in the U.S.

Mission: NCSBN provides education, service and research through collaborative leadership to promote evidence-based regulatory excellence for patient safety and public protection.

The statements and opinions expressed are those of NCSBN and not the individual member state or territorial boards of nursing.
