Does Texas Require A Collaborative Practice Agreement

Nursing anesthesiologists who support themselves as a nurse anesthesiologist or who use the term nurse-anesthetist in their advertising should be aware that false, misleading and misleading statements and information cannot violate commercial freedom of speech and/or rules. Licensees should pay particular attention to presentations that involve erroneous statements or create unjustified expectations or confusion regarding a person`s references, training, experience, expertise or legal scope of practice. All BABs are first licensed as RN and must maintain the RN license in order to maintain the Advanced Practice license. The APRN is not prohibited from accepting an order: as part of the practice of an RN [Board Rule 221.12(2) (texreg.sos.state.tx.us/public/readtac$ext.TacPage?sl=R&app=9 p_dir=&p_rloc=&p_tloc=&p_ploc==pg=1&p_tac==22&p=11 =221>rl=12]]. If the APRN operates in the RN, the field of activity is limited to that of the RN. RNs, which are also APRNs, cannot exceed the scope of APRN and participate in activities such as medical diagnosis, ordering or prescribing if they practice RN. It is also important to note that an RN who holds the current license as an APRN is maintained at the highest level of his training and skills. To explain it further, there may be a situation where a nurse takes care of a patient in the RN role and recognizes, due to her knowledge and skills related to medical diagnosis and management, the signs and symptoms of a health condition that is not easily recognizable by an RN that is not an APRN. . . .
