SB 1042 (Roth, D-Riverside) Details

Passed the Assembly Health Committee on June 11. June 25 hearing in the Assembly Business and Professions Committee.

SB 1042 would require health facilities, as defined in Health and Safety Code section 1250, and clinics, as defined in Health and Safety Code sections 1200 and 1204, to report to the Board of Registered Nursing (BRN) information on the number of clinical placements available. All approved nursing programs, public and private, would be required to report their clinical placement needs. Upon request of an approved nursing program, health facilities and clinics would be required to meet with representatives from the nursing program to work in good faith to meet the program’s demands related to educating and training nurses. The bill also allows the BRN, upon request by an approved nursing program, to assist in finding clinical placement slots to meet the program’s clinical placements needs. Hospitals may elect to make existing or additional clinical placements slots available. CHA continues to work with the author’s office to address concerns.
