The Initiative to Advance Innovations in Nursing Education: Three Years Later


Calls for innovation in nursing education have been prevalent in recent years.  In 2009, the Innovations in Education Regulation Committee, convened by the National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN), worked collaboratively with other stakeholders to identify perceived and real barriers to innovation in nursing education and proposed model rules and statute language that boards of nursing could adapt to foster innovations in their state’s nursing programs.  The model language was unanimously adopted by NCSBN’s Member Boards.  Since then, NCSBN has conducted three surveys to determine the impact of NCSBN’s initiative as well as the state of innovations in nursing education.  Following a review of the committee’s work, this article presents survey data on innovation in nursing education over the last 3 years.
