§ 4711. Temporary licensure for student respiratory therapists
(a) Respiratory care services may be performed without a license by a student currently enrolled in a respiratory care educational program when these services are incidental to the clinical aspect of a student's course of study.
(b) A student enrolled in a respiratory care educational program who is employed in an organized health care system shall apply for a temporary student license from the director prior to performing respiratory care services. Students who have obtained a temporary license may render respiratory care services only under the direct supervision of a licensed respiratory care practitioner for a limited period of time and under conditions specified by the director by rule. The scope of practice of the student respiratory therapist is limited to those activities for which there is documented evidence of competency. (Added 2003, No. 139 (Adj. Sess.), § 2.)
