Notice of Rulemaking Activity
At its meeting held on February 20, 2013, the Louisiana State Board of Nursing approved an amendment to Section §3328, Temporary Permits Rules and Regulations, Title 46, Professional and Occupational Standards, Part LXVII. Nurses, Subpart 2: Registered Nurses. The proposed revisions authorizes the board to issue a Special Healthcare Event Temporary Permit to an individual to practice as a registered nurse or advanced practice registered nurse to provide services in Louisiana, during a gratuitous special healthcare event.
The first step in the rulemaking process is the publication of the Board's Notice of Intent in the May 20, 2013 edition of the Louisiana Register. As of May 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 written comments on the proposed revisions by June 10, 2013. Please direct all written communications regarding this proposal to my attention at the Board office.
For the Board
