Mission Statement:
The State Board of Nursing establishes rules and regulations for the licensure and practice of professional and practical nursing in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and provides for the examination of all applicants.  The Board examines all applicants for licensure and issues licenses for professional nursing and practical nursing to persons passing such examinations and meeting other qualifications for licensure.  The Board establishes standards for the approval and operation of nursing education programs for the preparation of professional nurses (RNs) and prepares and distributes an annual list of all approved programs.  In addition, the Board annually prepares and distributes a list of all Board-approved schools and institutions for the education of practical nurses (LPNs).  The Board regulates certified registered nurse practitioners (CRNPs) and approves programs for their education.  In addition, Act 99 of 2002 (effective 9/29/02) amended the Professional Nursing Law to include licensing of dietitian-nutritionists.
