February 1, 2016: New Administrative Rule Language

Following a November 19, 2015 public rules hearing and JCARR hearing, the Board final filed administrative rule amendments. The new rule language is expected to be effective February 1, 2016, related to Ohio Administrative Code Chapters 4723-8, Advanced Practice Nurse Certification and Practice; 4723-9, Prescriptive Authority; and 4723-23, Dialysis Technicians, as part of the Board of Nursing’s five-year rule review. The Board also revised or promulgated rule language due to legislation, to correct errors or to update form reference effective dates. A summary of these revisions will be published in the Winter 2016 edition of Momentum, due to be published in February. Momentum editions are available under the Publications link on this webpage.
