The State Board of Respiratory Care posted proposed rule changes on August 6. These changes address several areas of respiratory care. These proposed changes do not reflect the law that was sign by Governor Christie in July 2017. The proposed changes are a cumulation of several different areas within our regulations, such as, delegation of services, scope of practice, codify criminal history background check, reinstatement, license renewal, reinstatement of a license, and continuing education.
The state society will be submitting comments on these proposed changes. Any member wanting to submit comment may do so by following the instructions on rule proposal web page by October 5.
Read the proposed changes on the Division of Consumer Affairs website.
