Credit: Lars KloveEarlier this month, Charles Ornstein and Tracy Weber took the unique step of publishing a reporting recipe to show people how they could do their own investigations of nursing boards and other state regulatory and licensing agencies. At the time, we said we would schedule a conference call so that the reporters could walk you through the reporting recipe and answer any questions you might have. Well, the cake has been baking long enough, and we've set the date for the call -- Thursday, March 25 at 2 p.m. EDT/11 a.m. PST. If you plan to participate in the call, please sign up here. Call-in information will be sent to those who want to participate.

Ornstein and Weber will share some of their reporting tips and give callers advice on where to find information, what to ask and how to turn your data into a coherent investigation. After we published our recipe, both the Texas Tribune and the Allentown Morning Call published stories about errant nurses and cited our investigation. And once you're familiar with Ornstein and Weber's process, we hope you'll take a closer look to see how your state boards and agencies are performing.
