Rule Revisions

The Board completes its five-year review of applicable rules in a timely manner each year. Also, each year, individual rules not slated for five-year review are amended to comply with recent legislative changes or for technical or non-substantive reasons.

In 2020, as part of the five-year review, the Board is reviewing rules in Ohio Administrative Code Chapter 8, Advanced Practice Registered Nurse Certification and Practice, Chapter 9: Prescriptive Authority, and Chapter 23: Dialysis Technicians. The Board will also consider revisions to individual rules that are not slated for five-year review, but are either required to be revised, or recommended to be updated, due to recent legislative action, or for technical reasons.

The following is a summary of the proposals for 2020 as reviewed by the Board at its May 20-21, 2020 Board meeting: May 1, 2020 Rules Memorandum w/attachments.

If you have any comments on the rules you would like the Board to consider at its July 2020 meeting, please email rules@nursing.ohio.gov.
