Yesterday the Ohio Board of Nursing staff briefed the board members on House Bill 216 changes and what the staff was implementing.  Though not all changes have been addressed yet by the OBON, the APRN Licensure Implementation has.   Please see the details of the plan at this LINK.

I am very disappointed with OAAPN not providing the mandatory Ohio Law CEU's for us. I would think this would be a priority because of it being a renewal year. When I called to inquire about the courses, I was told 'it was too confusing due to the frequency of the laws changing'. I told the representative- 'well, if you can't keep up with it, how do you think we feel'. I just renewed my membership and will be asking for a refund.

The above hyperlink is not functioning correctly. Caitlyn, I am in the same situation that you are. I have a possible job opportunity, but it is required that I not have to complete the 500 hours of direct supervision. I was told in March that after April 7th, we could "renew" our license early, and then at that time the CTP-E would no longer be active. If you read the verbiage of the bill, it states as of April 7th we will be grandfathered into the licensure provided by Bill 216; however, I am not getting a clear response from the Ohio Nursing Board how this transition will occur. I have contacted them, and I am awaiting reply. I will keep you posted.

I graduated in December 2016 and acquired by Ohio COA in the past week. I have not gotten a job yet with a collaborating physician so I have not yet acquired a CTP. How does this bill affect me?
