News about California Board of Registered Nursing

On October 5, 2017, California Governor Brown signed SB 799 (Hill) into law. This legislation extends the Board of Registered Nursing to January 1, 2022, meaning that the board will next be up for “sunset” review in four years. It also directs the California Research Bureau to study employer reporting of possible violators of the Nursing Practice Act and provide findings by January 1, 2019, so the board can identify ways to receive such data in a timely manner and makes other changes consistent with the earlier sunset review report on the Board of Registered Nursing.
