The Board is advised by and appoints members to standing advisory committees.  These committees are composed of nursing professionals who are chosen based on expertise, geographic location and committee need.  Questions about nursing regulations and practice are brought to these committees for research, discussion and policy development.  The Board considers the recommendations of its advisory committees during its regular meetings.  Virtually every law, regulation and advisory opinion issued by the Board has been based on a recommendation by one of its advisory committees.  Committee openings are advertised in the NSBN News, the Board's magazine, and here on our website.  Applications are reviewed and members are appointed at regularly scheduled Board meetings. Board staff members serve as advisory committee chairs.
