FAPSC Provides Testimony to Florida Board of Nursing
Kathy Mizereck, FAPSC Executive Director
On October 7, 2009, FAPSC President Wayne Slater and Executive Director Kathy Mizereck provided testimony to the Florida Board of Nursing on the implementation of House Bill 1209, last year's nursing bill. Many FAPSC member schools were in attendance, and were recognized by President Slater during his remarks. FAPSC raised six issues for the Board to consider: the application form; status of programs as for July 1, 2009; required program pass rates on the NCLEX; placing programs on probation; moving programs off probation; and the board's rulemaking authority.
FAPSC has established a new committee to provide support and best practices to our member schools with nursing programs, so that our students and programs will be high quality and successful. For more information, contact Kathy Mizereck via email at Kathy@FAPSC.org.
FAPSC will continue to provide a voice for all schools in our sector on legislative and regulatory issues, and we appreciate the support of our member schools.
