Board of Nursing

Nurses came under the jurisdiction of the Department upon its creation in 1917. The regulatory Act

includes both "practical", "registered" and "advanced practice" nurses within its scope and includes

nursing in all of its specialties. The Board of Nursing has thirteen members appointed by the

Secretary, consisting of four advanced practice nurses, three nursing educator representatives, two

registered nurses, one licensed practical nurse, one nursing administrator, one nurse and one public

member. The Board's duties include making recommendations on the adoption of revisions to the rules

and regulations necessary to carry out the provisions of the Act, conducting hearings and disciplinary

conferences upon charges calling for discipline of a licensee, and recommending approval or denial of

nursing education programs.
