NC3- Nursing Care

What is NC-3?

In support of Illinois’ Staffing by Patient Acuity Law, IONL has created the following platform. The Nursing Care Committee Consortium (NC-3) is an attempt to bring some collaboration, education, and sharing for our state mandated Nursing Care Committees. The purpose is to promote the quality of care and improve the delivery of healthcare services through a lively exchange of ideas among nursing care committees throughout the State of Illinois. You do not have to be an IONL member to participate; all hospitals are welcome!

This is about us sharing our best practices, our struggles, and our needs as Illinois nurses and meeting the intent of our state law.
