CHAPTER 215. PROFESSIONAL NURSING
22 TAC 215.1 - 215.13
Introduction. The Texas Board of Nursing (Board) proposes
amendments to Chapter 215, 215.1 - 215.13, relating to
Professional Nursing Education. The amendments are pro-
posed under the Occupations Code 301.151, 301.155(a),
301.157, and 301.257 and are necessary to: (i) clarify existing
requirements within the chapter; (ii) strengthen the qualifica-
tions/requirements for authors of new professional nursing
education program proposals and proposed professional nurs-
ing education program deans/directors; (iii) provide for additional
oversight over the establishment of extension sites/campuses;
(iv) provide for additional monitoring of professional nursing
education programs that may be categorized as high-risk; (v)
require ADN programs to establish articulation agreements with
BSN programs; (vi) require professional nursing education pro-
grams to include geriatric and end of life care in their program
content; and (vii) eliminate outdated and redundant references
from the chapter.
As part of its regular review of Board rules, Staff reviewed Chap-
ter 215 and presented recommendations to the Board at its Oc-
tober, 2011, meeting. Following Staffs presentation, the Board
issued a charge to the Advisory Committee on Education (Com-
mittee) to consider several potential rule amendments to Chap-
ter 215. On March 7, 2012, the Committee met to discuss the
Board's charge. Following its discussions, the Committee voted
