The Answer to All Your Nursing Practice Questions
Thursday, August 3, 2017
By Andrew Cates, General Counsel and Director of Government Affairs, Texas Nurses Association
More than 100 years ago — before women could even vote — a group of nurses convinced Texas legislators to pass the state’s first nursing practice act.
Throughout the decades, the statute has been changed and refined. While the content continues to be nurse driven, the act as a whole can be complicated and circuitous.
Don’t despair! A comprehensive guide is now available for all your Texas nursing practice questions. The Texas Nurses Association recently made available for purchase the 13th edition of the Texas Nursing Practice Act annotated guide. This one-of-a-kind guide gathers the complications of the law into one convenient place and adds practice notes to simplify it for anyone to understand and easily navigate.
The Texas Nurses Association collaborated with expert attorneys to probe all available laws, rules, opinions, and best practices to understand what it is that nurses need to know about their practice. This guide collects all of the information you need and separates it into subject matter areas like Scope of Practice, Discipline, and Workplace Protections. This helps you find what you’re looking for without endless searching and needless page flipping.
The 13th edition is the culmination of more than three decade of experience in the nursing profession with historical perspective and guides to better understand the rights and responsibilities of nurses under Texas law.
