David Benton has a long and storied career in the realm of nursing. It was one that brought him from a tiny village in Aberdeenshire, Scotland, to Chicago, where he now sits as CEO of the National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN).

 

As an independent, not-for-profit organization that brings nursing regulatory bodies together on matters of public health, safety and welfare, and nursing licensure, NCSBN has a sweeping mandate, one that means Benton and staff work tirelessly to foster cohesion and cooperation among nursing regulators. 

 

Benton recently sat down with Ascend Magazine Editor Paul Leavoy to discuss a wide range of topics, including:

 

  • The history and purpose of NCSBN as well as its current and future focus areas.
  • Changes coming with the forthcoming next-generation National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX), which introduces a new paradigm in scoring.
  • Whether the millions of health care support workers across the U.S. should be regulated.
  • How demographic changes are poised to change the entire realm of health care regulation.
  • Licensing mobility, technological possibilities, NCSBN research findings, and a whole lot more.

 

If you’d like to read more about nursing regulation and NCSBN’s work, we also have a three-part Q&A series with Benton, which covers a range of other topics.
