On April 1, 2023, 21 NCAC 36 .0228 Clinical Nurse Specialist Practice was published in the Administrative Code. The amended Rule eliminated the portfolio route for new CNS recognition and aligns with the requirements for Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist, Certified Nurse Midwives and Nurse Practitioners. Following publication to the Administrative Code, staff discovered a typographical error in (g)(3)(C). While this does not change the intent of the Rule, the date requires correction. After consultation with the Codifier of Rules, the Board was advised to proceed through the rulemaking process to correct the error.
