Darn it! PinoyNP beat me to it.
The link above looks like something a lawyer needs to interpret, not a layperson. It states "..they [NURSES] are obligated to know and conform to the Nursing Practice Act and BNE rules in addition to all federal, state and local laws, rules or regulations affecting their current area of nursing practice"
That's absurd. Looks to me like it's still rather undefined, and no matter what position you take as an APN, there are lawyers who can argue in your defense. The article says "....what if a physician wants me to do this procedure and shows me how" and then it goes on to say that you must get proper training (and that is defined as "different depending on procedure").
In other words, proper training isn't
defined. Nurses are nurses, they are not lawyers.
This Illinois Nursing Act specifically states that multiple advanced practice nursing does not require multiple degrees:
Those applicants seeking licensure in more than one advanced practice nursing category need not possess multiple graduate degrees. Applicants may be eligible for licenses for multiple advanced practice nurse licensure categories, provided that the applicant (i) has met the requirements for at least one advanced practice nursing specialty under paragraphs (3) and (5) of subsection (a) of this Section, (ii) possesses an additional graduate education that results in a certificate for another clinical advanced practice nurse category and that meets the requirements for the national certification from the appropriate nursing specialty, and (iii) holds a current national certification from the appropriate national certifying body for that additional advanced practice nursing category.
