NYS RN License Question

Posted

Hi all,

I have to do a paper for class on policy issues in Nursing and I have a question about NYS RN licensing mandates. As licensed RN's in the state of NY are we mandated by the state and by the terms of the license to render medical assistance to people in need when we're off duty? I'm not asking about ethical or moral obligations (I know that we are), but am specifically asking about the legal aspect of it.

Thanks, all input is appreciated.
