Here are the most recent health care related regulatory developments as published in the New Jersey Register on January 3, 2017:

  • On January 3, 2017 at 49 NJR 50, the Board of Medical Examiners published notice of its proposal of amendments to its rules governing the standards for declaration of death based upon neurological criteria (brain death).
  • On January 3, 2017 at 49 NJR 101, the Department of Human Services published notice of its readoption with amendments to its rules governing psychiatric residential treatment facility services for individuals under age 21.
  • On January 3, 2017 at 49 NJR 116, the State Board of Nursing published notice of its repeal of NJAC 13:37-7.3.  The regulation had allowed advanced practice nurses to practice under a work permit letter while they were waiting to take the advance practice nursing certification exam.  The Board proposed repeal of the regulation because the availability of on line advanced practice nursing certification examinations obviates the need for work permit letters, since applicants no longer need to wait for an exam to be held on a specific date.
  • On January 3, 2017 at 49 NJR 116, the State Board of Nursing published notice of its adoption of amendments to its rules regarding forensic nurse-certified sexual assault education programs.
