I don't know what the new nursing jurisprudence requirement is. Could you enlighten me?

It could just be a Texas thing. We have to take a nursing course one the law and how it affects us... but like most things non working PHD nurses come up with they gave no real guidance.

Moved thread to Texas Nursing as state spoecific Test and CE requirement.

There actually is a rationale for this. Our Nurse Practice Act is much more 'evolved' than other states. In fact, we are the only state that has a legally defined "nurse patient duty" (since 1984) that cannot be subsumed by the physician-patient duty.... and we were the only state with mandated Peer Review (since 1986) until Kansas joined us recently... We also need to make sure that everyone understands how to use the protections that are in place for individual nurses such as Safe Harbor. We also have specific CE requirements for relicensure.

Hello, I am just wondering if you take this course does it forego you having to take the test or is it in addition to taking the test?

This does not replace the test for initial licensure.
