Creator

This series documents the Advisory Opinion Statement (AOS) published by the Board. In 1983, the Kentucky Board of Nursing began publishing advisory opinion statements on various nursing practice issues. These statements are issued as guideposts to licensees who wish to engage in safe nursing practice. When studying practice issues, the Kentucky Board of Nursing reviews and considers applicable standards of practice statements issued by professional nursing organizations; the educational preparation of both Registered Nurses and Licensed Practical Nurses as provided in the prelicensure nursing education programs in Kentucky; and, when applicable, the organized post-basic educational programs for Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioners. Kentucky Board of Nursing also gathers information regarding practice issues from nurses in relevant practice settings, including staff nurses, supervisors, nurse faculty members, and /or representatives from state nursing associations, among others. The Kentucky Board of Nursing reviews applicable opinions issued by the Office of the Attorney General. When multiple inquiries are received on the same practice matter, the Kentucky Board of Nursing publishes an advisory opinion statement for wide dissemination. An opinion statement is an advisory opinion of the Kentucky Board of Nursing as to what constitutes safe nursing practice; it not a regulation of the Board and therefore does not have the force and effect of law. The opinions are revised frequently as medical knowledge becomes available and retained in agency. Series may contain: advisory opinions on practice manners; initial approval date; revision date(s); de-publication date.
