The Hellenic Regulatory Board of Nurses (HRBON) is a self managed competent authority for nurses in Greece. The board was established in 2004 under Greek public law 3252/04. The internal organisation of the HRBON is managed through legislative provisions of lawful acts. These are published based on legislative authorisation by the Hellenic government, or by the collective body that manages the competent authority itself whose decisions are approved by the Minister of Health.
The aims of HRBON are to protect the public through the promotion of nurses` professional practice. The Board holds the register and is responsible for licensing and disciplinary procedures. The Board is governed by a Temporary Executive Committee of 15 members (all of whom are nurses). The HRBON follows recognition process for nursing in collaboration with the Hellenic National Academic Recognition and Information Centre (NARIC).
