Last week, the National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN) Board of Directors announced they had endorsed the Institute of Medicine’s Initiative on the Future of Nursing committee's report: "The Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health" at their December 2010 meeting. The Board of Directors agreed with the report's reccomendations for the removal of limits that may hinder a nurses' scope of practice as well as emphasizing the importance of training Advanced Practice Registered Nurses to combat the current and looming shortfall in primary care providers.

The NCSBN is a not-for-profit organization whose members include the boards of nursing in the 50 states, the District of Columbia and four U.S. territories.
