- Review KBN’s role as a regulatory agency, its mission, programs and activities, including current legislation.
- Examine the responsibility and accountability of nurses, nursing supervisors, and administrators in relation to the Kentucky Nursing Laws, nursing practice, and current practice opinions.
- Discuss the complaint and disciplinary processes including mandatory reporting, investigation and resolution of complaints with actual case scenarios.
- Describe the requirements of nurses on probation and the role of an employer/peer.
- Explain the Kentucky Alternative Recovery Effort (KARE) for Nurses.
