FRANKFORT, KY – May 4, 2005 – The Kentucky Board of Nursing now has a new online presence, located at http://kbn.ky.gov. The Board of Nursing officially launched its redesigned site in April and features numerous online services and licensure-related information for nurses, hospitals and other health-related organizations. The site is also available at http://kentucky.gov, the state’s official web portal.
“We are thrilled to offer this new site to the citizens of Kentucky,” said Sharon Weisenbeck, executive director of the Kentucky Board of Nursing. “Our new site is easy to navigate and allows citizens and nursing professionals to find the information they need quickly.”
In addition, the site provides access to a variety of online services, including licensure renewal and verification, online address change, and data roster downloads. The newly-designed website also provides information on consumer protection, credentials and licensure information, nursing education and practice, licensure statistics reports, the Kentucky Nurse Aide Registry, and laws and regulations related to the nursing profession.
“I hope everyone will take some time to visit the KBN website,” said Weisenbeck. “We welcome input and suggestions and would like to continue our efforts to offer even more services online.”
The new site was built by the Board in partnership with Kentucky.gov, which also built and maintains the Commonwealth’s official website at http://kentucky.gov.
