Abstract: The Nursing Knowledge: Big Data Science Policy and Advocacy Workgroup and the Alliance for Nursing Informatics (ANI) recommend the National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN) ID should be used by key stakeholders as a nurse identifier to help demonstrate the value of nursing through research, and enhance individual care and health outcomes via more comprehensive documentation in the EHR, ERP, and other technologies and systems. This document outlines the body of work our workgroup has produced to advocate and educate about the use of a Unique Nurse Identifier.
