board. Nurses must comply with the law and
related rules in order to maintain their licenses.

Qualifications for licensure

Lecture cum discussion.

PPT

Why nursing
practice act
is important?

Nursing titles that are allowed to


be used

Scope of practice (what the nurse


is allowed to do)

Actions that can or will happen if


the nurse does not follow the
nursing law

All states and territories have enacted a nurse


practice act (NPA). Each states NPA is
enacted by the states legislature.
The NPA itself is insufficient to provide the
necessary guidance for the nursing profession,
therefore, each NPA establishes a board of
nursing (BON) that has the authority to develop
administrative rules or regulations to clarify or
make the law more specific.
Although the specificity of NPAs varies among
states, all NPAs include:

Authority, power and composition


of a board of nursing

Education program standards

Standards and scope of nursing


practice

Types of titles and licenses

Requirements for licensure

Grounds for disciplinary action,


other violations and possible
remedies

The practice of nursing is a right granted by a


state to protect those who need nursing care. The
guidelines of the NPA and its rules provide safe
parameters within which to work, as well as
protect patients from unprofessional and unsafe
nursing practice. The act is a dynamic document
that evolves and is updated or amended as
changes in scope of practice occur.
