Nursing is  the  second  largest  group  of  licensed professionals in  the  United States with more than 4.5 million individuals holding licenses and most frequently the case managers for patients in home health, hospice and home care.

In the home, the licensed nurse is working in a setting without direct oversight and has to make professional decisions every day related to the care of patients.  He or she has to rely on her knowledge and judgement to ensure he/she is practicing in compliance with the state Nurse Practice Act, Medicare Conditions of Participation, home care licensure laws, and a myriad of other rules and regulations that impact the provision of home care.
One of the more common Medicare Conditions of Participation deficiencies cited during licensure and certification surveys in recent years has been Nursing Services.
Do you know what is included in:
•    The scope of practice provisions in your state’s Nurse Practice Act?
•    The components of the Medicare Nursing Service Condition of Participation?
•    Your state’s licensure law?
•    The role of the National Council of the State Boards of Nursing?
Every day you work as a licensed nurse, you put your license on the line while serving your patients if you are not staying up-to-date on the constantly changing regulations. Come join us for this fast- paced 90-minute webinar that will explore the role and relationship of the State Board of Nursing and Individual State Nurse Practice Act to you. Plus, we will demonstrate how aligning with the nursing process can minimize chances of non-compliance with existing regulations and result in a win-win for you as the individual nurse and avoid deficiencies for your agency.
