House Bill HB relates to the continuation and functions of the Board and to the regulation of the practice of Nursing. HB prohibits the BON from charging a nurse for the administrative costs of conducting a hearing at the state office for administrative hearings. The BON is also required to develop guidelines in rule to establish individualized requirements for participants in a peer assistance program, and to create a formal process that allows a nursing student to request a re-evaluation of the requirement to participate in the peer assistance program upon initial licensure.

Introduction Welcome to the practice of nursing in the State of Texas. To assist you in being aware of these changes, the Board offers the following information and detailed table of contents.
These chapters of the TOC define nursing practice and give the Board the authority to make rules which implement and interpret the NPA. The NPA and the Rules are amended from time to time. Only the Legislature can change the NPA, so statutory changes only occur every two years.
The Board makes rule changes as needed to assist in the application of the NPA to evolving practice conditions and settings. It is necessary, therefore, that you keep up with the changes.
