Agency Decision Text
The Board of Nursing considered the request at its meeting on July 15, 2104 and decided
to initiate rulemaking. An amendment to section 221 was adopted to add "state and
federal government agencies" to the list of providers which may recognize or approve
workshops, seminars, conferences or courses that are relevant to the practice of nursing.
The amendment was adopted as a fast-track action, but will not become effective until
approved by the Governor.
