The Indiana State Board of Nursing has established the following ad hoc subcommittees representing the respective interests of the profession of nursing:
The Advance Practice Nurse subcommittee was formed by the Board to develop recommendations on rule changes and other measures for improving advance practice nursing in the State of Indiana. The members of the subcommittee serve at the leisure of the Board and are responsible for reporting to the Board its progress and any recommendations at the regular monthly Board meeting scheduled for October 16, 2008.
December 11, 2008 Report and Recommendations to the Board. These recommendations were formally approved by the Board at the December 11, 2008 Board Meeting. The next step in this process is the initiation of a formal administrative rulemaking process to amend the current rules as recommended.
The Nurse Education subcommittee was established to provide the Board with recommendations on how to improve rules regarding nurse education. The subcommittee will examine such topics as the use of simulation in place of clinical requirements, how NCLEX pass rates are determined, and how educational requirements might address workforce shortage issues. The subcommittee will report back to the Board at the September 18, 2008 Board meeting.
