General Information
Action Summary This action will also repeal sections 20 through 60 to move the requirements for nurse aide education programs into a separate chapter, promulgated as Chapter 26. In the re-promulgation regulation, the administrative processes for initial board approval, continued approval, and denial of approval are revised for consistency with current delegation of authority to professional staff for nursing education programs and the Administrative Process Act. Requirements for curriculum, instructors, course hours, and other essential elements of an approved program are identical to those currently in Chapter 25.
