Assembly Bill 327 was passed and will became effective January 1, 2022. The law requires that all licensee holders (RNs, LPNs, APRNs, CRNAs) complete one or more courses of instruction that provide at least 2 hours of continuing education (CEs/CEUs) relating to cultural competency, diversity, equity, and inclusion. This is to be completed with EVERY renewal cycle. While CNAs are not mandated to complete this instruction, we do encourage you to do so. The training:
(1) May include the training provided pursuant to NRS 449.103, where applicable.
(2) Must be based upon a range of research from diverse sources.
(3) Must address persons of different cultural backgrounds, including, without limitation:
I. Persons from various gender, racial and ethnic backgrounds;
II. Persons from various religious backgrounds;
III. Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning persons;
IV. Children and senior citizens;
VI. Persons with a mental illness;
VII. Persons with an intellectual disability, developmental disability or physical disability; and
VIII. Persons who are part of any other population that a person licensed pursuant to this chapter may need to better understand, as determined by the Board.
The two hours may be counted as part of the 30-hour CE requirement for RN and LPN renewal, and as part of the 45-hour CE requirement for APRN and CRNA renewal.
