Here are the most recent health care related regulatory developments as published in the New Jersey Register on June 6, 2016:

  • On June 6, 2016 at 48 NJR 878, the Department of Health published notice of its proposed readoption with amendments to the standards for licensure of pediatric community transitional homes.
  • On June 6, 2016 at 48 NJR 911, the Department of Human Services published notice of its proposed readoption with amendments to its rules governing family support services offered through the Division of Mental Health and Addiction Services.
  • On June 6, 2016 at 48 NJR 945, the Board of Nursing published notice of its proposal of amendments to its rules governing license renewal and the educational requirements for certification of advanced practice nurses.
  • On June 6, 2016 at 48 NJR 946, the Board of Nursing published notice of its proposed repeal of a regulation which allowed advanced practice nurses who have submitted applications for advanced practice nurse certification, but who have not yet passed the certification examination, to apply to the Board for a work permit letter. The Board indicted that the regulation is no longer necessary because certification examinations are available at almost any time via computer, and applicants no longer have to wait an extended period before they can take the certification exam.
