The purpose of the IBON’s podcast is to share information that nurses might normally receive in written format, but delivered in “sound” format. Sound factual information about the Board and its mission will be provided to guide nurses in topics of education, licensure, disciplinary and workforce matters. Other stories told will be based on fictional situations so as to maintain the privacy of each and every nurse we serve. Nurses are busy people. The goal is to provide information whereby a nurse can listen to the content, wherever they are. Welcome to Nursing "Sound" Reports!
