Regulatory reform changes
[Withdrawn 6/21/2013]
Reason for Withdrawal
Consolidated with Action 3994 / Stage 6606
General Information
Action Summary Regulations are amended to clarify the regulations, facilitate electronic submission of documents and forms, accept a certificate of naturalization as evidence of a name change, and allow completion of one clinical nursing course within the past 12 months to qualify an applicant for registration. 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.
