We reported last week that state officials are mostly blaming state employees, not new IT software, for Board of Registered Nursing delays assigning licensing test dates for nursing school graduates.

If you haven’t seen the story, you can check it out here. Then think about it in the context of other IT stories – last year’s state payroll debacle, the Labor Day weekend snafu at EDD, the DMV’s failed tech overhaul – and take the poll below or access it via this link.
