                            CHAPTER 318-H.F.No. 2558 
                  An act relating to professions; modifying provisions 
                  governing the practice of nursing; amending Minnesota 
                  Statutes 1994, section 148.231, subdivision 5; 
                  proposing coding for new law in Minnesota Statutes, 
                  chapter 148.  
        BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF MINNESOTA: 
           Section 1.  Minnesota Statutes 1994, section 148.231, 
        subdivision 5, is amended to read: 
           Subd. 5.  [REREGISTRATION.] A person whose registration has 
        lapsed desiring to resume practice shall make application for 
        reregistration, submit satisfactory evidence of compliance with 
        the procedures and requirements established by the board, and 
        pay the registration fee for the current period to the board.  A 
        penalty fee shall be required from a person who practiced 
        nursing without current registration.  Thereupon, the 
        registration certificate shall be issued to the person who shall 
        immediately be placed on the practicing list as a registered 
        nurse or licensed practical nurse. 
           Sec. 2.  [148.234] [STATE BOUNDARIES CONSIDERATION.] 
           A nurse may perform medical care procedures and techniques 
        at the direction of a physician, podiatrist, or dentist licensed 
        in another state, United States territory, or Canadian province 
        if the physician, podiatrist, or dentist gave the direction 
        after examining the patient and issued the direction in that 
        state, United States territory, or Canadian province. 
           Nothing in this section allows a nurse to perform a medical 
        procedure or technique at the direction of a physician, 
        podiatrist, or dentist that is illegal in this state.
