Requirements for licensure of Advanced Practical Nurses May Soon Change

The State Board of Nursing has proposed a deletion to N.J.A.C. 13:37-7.2 (b). That section of the administrative code requires an applicant for certification as an advanced practice nurse to have completed his/her education no more than two years prior to the submission of an application to the New Jersey State Board of Nursing.

Apparently, the Board has found that several otherwise qualified candidates have not been able to obtain certification due to this requirement and believes that the health and public welfare is better served by deletion of the administrative code provision.
