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