NEWARK – The Board of Respiratory Care (Board) is proposing amendments to implement P.L. 2017, c. 120, which became effective on July 21, 2017.
The new law revises various sections of the Respiratory Care Practitioner Licensing Act, concerning the definitions of various terms associated with respiratory care practice, proper titles and acronyms to be used by licensed respiratory care practitioners, examination requirements associated with the licensure of respiratory care practitioners, and the criteria by which credit for continuing education in respiratory care will be accepted. In addition, P.L. 2017, c. 120 eliminated temporary licensure for those waiting to take the licensure examination.
The proposed regulation, and information on how to submit a comment by October 18, 2019, can be viewed on the Division of Consumer Affairs’ website here.
