2 Introduction Professional nursing has expanded rapidly within the past few years to include increased expertise, specialization, autonomy, and accountability from both legal and ethical perspectives. Nurses must be informed of legal issues to stay current and within their scope of practice.
3 Professional Nursing Practice Nurse Practice Act The single most important piece of legislation for nursing because it affects all facets of nursing practice. It is the law within the state and state boards of nursing cannot grant exceptions, waive the act s s provisions, or expand practice outside the act s s specific provisions.
4 State Boards of Nursing Established by Nurse Practice Act Two main purposes - Ensure enforcement of the act by serving regulate those who come under its provisions and prevent those not addressed within the act from practicing nursing.
5 To protect the public, ensuring that those who present themselves as nurses are licensed to practice within the state.
6 The National Council of State Boards of Nursing serves to further ensure that individual state actions against a nurse s license are recorded and enforced in all states in which the individual nurse holds licensure.
