Private Duty Licensure in Illinois

  1. Recently the Illinois General Assembly passed a private duty licensure requirement (Home Health, Home Services, and Home Nursing Agency Licensing Act).

    I have been heavily involved with my agency's efforts to obtain licensure and get in compliance with all the new regs. I would love to hear from anyone involved in a project like this, particularly in Illinois.

    Is this just for agencies, or any nurse in general?

    Just agencies. This was designed to protect the consumer, and in theory is a great idea but in practice has been a nightmare. The law was passed and regs provided to the public and agencies about one month before the law went into effect. Very difficult to get everything into compliance.

    No one else working on this?
