CEU gone BAD, BAD, BAD

Posted Nov 18 2008 12:21am

The Texas Board of Nurses has adopted the new CEU rules I warned you about in a June postin g. The new rule allows the Board to refuse to renew a license if the nurse does not comply with continuing education requirements. Besides the complaints I had in that posting, I also question the legality of taking away a license without notice and a hearing. Since there were no comments about the proposed law and there were no complaints about the broad application of section 301.303(a) Nurse Practice Act, the rule will stand until there is a rule challenge.

The lessons to be learned here are to join organizations that monitor proposed rules and legislation and be sure that those organizations reflect your concerns about nursing practice AND be sure that your address is current with the Board so that you get all notices AND be sure to keep up with your continuing education credits and any audits.
