NCSBN Offers Convenient Access to Enrollment for Volunteer COVID-19 Vaccine Providers
CHICAGO – NCSBN is offering eligible vaccinators, such as nurses and physicians, the opportunity to volunteer to administer the COVID-19 vaccine in one convenient location. Volunteers can access the most up-to-date national list of state registries for vaccine provider enrollment at ncsbn.org/VaccinationVolunteers.
Recognizing that the supply of COVID-19 vaccines will exponentially increase in the coming weeks and there will be a vital need for qualified health care provider vaccinators, NCSBN compiled a list of state registries for provider enrollment. Individuals wishing to volunteer can directly access their state registry on the NCSBN website.
NCSBN CEO David C. Benton, RGN, PhD, FFNF, FRCN, FAAN, comments, “We are extremely fortunate to now have the greatest weapon available to combat one of the most serious health care crises of our time. This invaluable resource offers health care providers the chance to register to administer the vaccines that will help bring about the end to the pandemic.”
Founded March 15, 1978, as an independent not-for-profit organization, NCSBN was initially created to lessen the burdens of state governments and bring together nursing regulatory bodies (NRBs) to act and counsel together on matters of common interest. It has evolved into one of the leading voices of regulation across the world.
NCSBN’s membership is comprised of the NRBs 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 three exam user members. There are also 27 associate members that are either NRBs or empowered regulatory authorities from other countries or territories.
Mission: NCSBN empowers and supports nursing regulators in their mandate to protect the public.
