Under existing law, the State Board of Nursing employs investigators who investigate alleged violations of the Nurse Practice Act. The investigators do not have the power of law enforcement officers and are not required to meet the minimum standards for law enforcement officers.
This bill would grant investigators of the Board of Nursing who meet the minimum standards of the Alabama Peace Officers' Standards and
Training Commission authority to exercise the powers of law enforcement officers, except the power to make arrests, in investigating
alleged violations perpetrated by licensees of the Nurse Practice Act.
