The Kaiser Family Foundation Provides Information Useful for NPs

The Kaiser Family Foundation (KFF) is a non-profit, non-partisan organization that provides information on national health issues & disseminates that information through Kaiser Health News (KHN). KFF programs include policy analysis, polling, journalism & communication.

Key parts of these programs include analyzing health care policies, conducting surveys on Americans’ attitudes, knowledge & experiences with the US health care system, tracking state reform efforts, & providing research & policy analysis into health care disparities.

KFF is an authoritative source of state health facts, including data from New Mexico. For example, there's very current data (July 19, 2018) outlining state-by-state requirements for insurance coverage of contraceptives (NM requires coverage of prescription contraception but does not require coverage of related outpatient services or no-cost contraceptive coverage). For this & much more information, visit their website.

NM Board of Nursing Update

Nurses licensed in New Mexico should create an account with Nursys, the new license verification & renewal system. For more information go to the NMBON website.
