ASSISTANCE AND PRACTICE
22 TAC 217.21
Introduction. The Texas Board of Nursing (Board) proposes new

Remedial Education Courses). This new section is being pro-
posed under the authority of the Occupations Code 301.303,
301.452, 301.453, and 301.151 and is necessary to create,
in rule, an approval process for remedial education course
providers (providers) and remedial education courses (courses),
including the creation of new fees for the approval and renewal
of courses. Additional amendments affecting 22 TAC 223.1
(relating to Fees) are being simultaneously proposed in this
issue of the Texas Register
The Board's mission is to protect the health, safety, and welfare
of the public. One way in which the Board fulfills this obligation is
by regulating the conduct of its licensees. When a licensee com-
mits a violation of the Nursing Practice Act (Occupations Code
Chapter 301), the Board is authorized to take disciplinary action
