NCMB Strategic Plan: 2015 - 2018

At its September 2014 Retreat, the Board reached consensus around being more proactive in its mission of protecting the public and more relevant to the constantly changing marketplace, health care practice models, and licensee, stakeholder, and public expectations. The Board also recognizes the uncertainties and complexities inherent in its Current State (2014) and seeks to clarify for those it serves and to lead in its policies - as much as practicable - toward a shared vision of its Future State, by 2018.
