The Texas Board of Nursing (BON) released its frequently asked questions (FAQs) regarding History and Physical Exams (H&Ps). This issue arose in the context of CRNAs performing H&Ps in cosmetic settings. TxANA has been diligently working on this regulatory issue as it was initially subject to question by the BON.
Please view the FAQ here.
TxANA is content with the FAQ language. This information restates TxANA's initial position, which was that CRNAs take the same health assessment courses as other APRNs, and therefore H&Ps should be within CRNA scope regardless of the setting.
Please contact the BON with any questions on this topic.
