Notice of Rulemaking Activity
At its meeting held on December 12, 2012, the Louisiana State Board of Nursing approved an amendment of Chapter 45, Title 46 PROFESSIONAL AND OCCUPATIONAL STANDARDS Part XL VII. Nurses, Subpart 2 Registered Nurses Chapter45. Advanced Practice Nurses. The proposed changes will align with national standards and regulations across all jurisdictions.
The first step in the rulemaking process is the publication of the Board's Notice of Intent in the April 20, 2013 edition of the Louisiana Register. As of April 20, 2013, you will be able to access the publication free of charge at the state register's website at www.doa.louisiana.gov/osr. The Notice of Intent can be found here.
The Board request to receive comments and testimony on the proposed chapter by May 10, 2013. Please direct all written communications regarding this proposal to my attention at the Board office.
For the Board
