Registered nurses (RNs) and licensed practical nurses (LPNs) in Ohio are legally bound to "practice in accordance with acceptable and prevailing standards of safe nursing care." This course will acquaint nurses with the basics of the Ohio Revised Code, which is the legal parameter for evaluating and disciplining nurses within this State. The Board and Legislature use national practice standards, current, nationally recognized periodicals, and professional expertise to update or modify Ohio Code. The Board evaluates reported deviation from standards with relation to intent, pattern and circumstance. After the evaluation of the violation a nurse is adjudicated through due process action. The board may revoke or place restrictions on the nurse's license, reprimand, and levy a fine or take no action when standards have been breached with regard to competent practice, nursing process, patient safety, or delegation of duty. Thus, it becomes the prudent practice for each Ohio nurse to become familiar with the basic standards which govern the major areas of practice for both the RN and LPN.
