Number of state boards of nursing that participate in the NCSBN Nursys data system

The chart below illustrates the number of state nursing boards that participate in the National Council of State Boards of Nursing’s Nursys data system. Nursys is the only national database for verification of nurse licensure, discipline, and practice privileges for registered nurses and licensed practical nurses/licensed vocational nurses licensed in participating boards of nursing, including all states in the Nurse Licensure Compact. These data expand on Dashboard Indicator 6: Workforce Data, used to measure the Campaign’s progress toward building infrastructure for collection and analysis of interprofessional health care workforce data.
