Proposed Regulation – Board of Nursing

NEWARK – The New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs has proposed amendments to regulations regarding conditional certification for Certified Homemaker-Home Health Aides.   

Currently, the Board issues a conditional certification to an individual who has applied for certification as a Certified Homemaker-Home Health aide while he or she undergoes a criminal history background check. A conditional certification authorizes an individual to be employed as a homemaker-home health aide for a period of up to 120 days while a criminal background check is pending. The proposed amendments would delete provisions which allow the Board to issue conditional certifications.  The proposed amendments would also establish procedures the Board will follow when a criminal history background check indicates that an applicant has been convicted of a crime or disorderly persons offense. 

The proposed regulation, and information on how to submit a comment by June 30, 2017, can be viewed at:
