The Practical Effect of the October 17, 2015 Nursing Board Regulation Requiring All Pennsylvania Licensed R.N.'s To Report Arrests

I recently wrote in my blog, that effective October 17, 2015, the Pennsylvania Nursing Board rules were changed to require all Pennsylvania licensed RN's, LPN's, CRNP's, LDN's and CNS's to report any misdemeanor or felony criminal charge, regardless of which jurisdiction the charges originate in. These same practitioners must also report within ninety (90) days any discipline from another jurisdiction.


The Pennsylvania State Coroner's Association recently released a report titled Report on Overdose Death Statistics - 2014, http://www.pacdaa.org/Documents/Pennsylvania%20State%20Coroners%20Association%20Drug%20Report%202014.pdf which stated there were over 2400 drug overdose deaths in Pennsylvania in 2014, an increase of about 20%.
