  • Regulatory Body
    The Connecticut Board of Examiners for Nursing is established under Statutes and Regulations- Connecticut General Statutes Chapter 378 – Nursing (Nurse Practice Act). The Board sets standards for courses for the training of practical nurses to be offered in high schools and vocational schools for students who have not yet acquired a high school diploma. Students who satisfactorily complete courses approved the board be given credit for each such course toward the requirements for a practical nurse's license. The Board keeps a list of all nursing programs and all programs for training licensed practical nurses that are approved by it. The Board also hears and decides matters concerning suspension or revocation of licensure, adjudicate complaints filed against practitioners licensed and impose sanctions where appropriate.

  • Health System
    Health care in the United States is mainly provided in the private sector (both for profit and non-profit) and to a lesser degree by public funding for the poor, elderly, disabled, children and veterans.  The United States does not have a universal health care system.

    In the United States expenditure on health care in actual dollars and as a proportion of gross domestic product (GDP) and on a per-capita basis is greater, than in any other nation in the world. The World Health Organisation reports that in 2005 the US total expenditure on health as 15 % of GDP and that the total expenditure on health per capita was $US6350. http://www.who.int/countries/usa/en/ (accessed on 22.04.2009).

    In 2006, around 84% of US citizens had some form of health insurance and about 16% of the population, or 47 million Americans were without health insurance coverage. http://www.census.gov/prod/2007pubs/p60-233.pdf (accessed on 22.04.2009).

    The number of acute care hospital beds in the United States in 2000 was 2.9 per 1 000 population. Bed numbers have declined and this coincides with a reduction in average length of stays in hospitals and an increase in day-surgery patients.
    The United States has among the lowest average lengths of stay for most procedures.  http://www.oecd.org/dataoecd/20/48/16502658.pdf (accessed on 22.04.2009).
