Welcome to the Texas Board of Nursing

New Chapter 225 proposed on Texas Register

Date Created:Thur, November 22, 2013

The Texas Board of Nursing proposes amendments to Chapter 225, §§225.1 - 225.6 and 225.8 - 225.11; and new §§225.12 - 225.15. The amendments and new sections are necessary in order to renumber the chapter sections and result in adding a new §225.15, concerning RN Delegation to Unlicensed Personnel and Tasks not Requiring Delegation in Independent Living Environments for Clients with Stable and Predictable Conditions. The revisions include: correction of outdated references to the Board of Nurse Examiners and legal citations; improved definitions of RN delegation; expansion to the lists of tasks that may be designated as Health Maintenance Activities (HMAs), including RN discretion to identify HMAs not specifically listed; clarification of minimum standards when delegating, including responsibility of nurse administrators; clarification of the duty to document proper assessment in support of decision making; specifying the duty to collaborate with the client when there is disagreement; and expanding the list of tasks that may be delegated, including reference to emergency delegation and RN discretion to identify delegable tasks not specifically listed or prohibited.
