5 Why Regulation of Nursing? OSBN’s Mission Statement The Oregon State Board of Nursing safeguards the public's health and well-being by providing guidance for, and regulation of, entry into the profession, nursing education and continuing safe practice.

6 What Is the Role of the Board of Nursing? Public protection. Determines requirements for licensure. Sets standards and scope of practice. Provides scope guidance for nurses and nursing assistants. Identifies inappropriate conduct and performance & takes disciplinary action regarding licensure. Approves nursing programs. Proposes legislative concepts. Influences public policy through testimony & public hearings. Establishes public policy on nursing regulatory issues.

12 Nursing: A Regulated Profession What does “a regulated profession” mean for you?

13 Nursing As a Regulated Profession Legislative decisions affect you. You must meet standards to be licensed. Your practice is regulated by the Nurse Practice Act and the OSBN. You must practice within scope and standards set by law. Failure to function within standards and scope may subject you to disciplinary action.

14 What is Scope of Practice? All of the activities in which a nurse may engage at his/her level of licensure. Each nurse has an individual scope within broader scope. Individual scope determined by in-service education, continuing education, practice experience, etc.

15 Scope of Practice (cont’d.) Documentation of how competency in new nursing activity is achieved and how it is maintained is required. Activities within scope must be recognized by nursing profession as proper to be performed by Oregon nurse. Scope, therefore, cannot be expanded by those outside of nursing (e.g. by physician).
