What Is

Children’s

Vision 1-3-5?

Children’s Vision 1-3-

5 reminds parents when

their young children

need to have an eye

examination from their

optometrist: Before Age

1, at Age 3 and at Age 5 before entering school.

The earlier a child’s vision problems are

detected, the more responsive the visual system

will be to treatment, and you will be ensuring

every child has the vision skills to learn.

For more information or to find an optometrist

near you contact the Kentucky Optometric

Foundation at (800) 320-2406 or visit our

website at www.kyeyes.org.

PARLIAMENTARY INFORMATION

Robert’s Rules of Order, Newly Revised is the parliamentary authority that shall govern the summit

Business Meeting. The President, as the presiding officer, rules on all matters relative to parliamentary

law and procedures. The Parliamentarian serves only in an advisory capacity to the presiding officer and

members.

Members’ participation in the business session is governed by the Standing Rules.

The motions that follow are defined in terms of action a member may desire to propose. Rules governing

these motions are listed in the table.

A main motion introduces a subject for consideration as is stated: “I move that…”

An amendment (primary) is a motion to modify the working of a motion. The motion to amend may be

made in one of the following forms, determined by the action desired: “I move to amend by…

. . . striking (word(s), phrase, paragraph).

. . . inserting (word(s), phrase, paragraph).

. . . striking and inserting (word(s), phrase, paragraph).

. . . adding (word(s), phrase, paragraph at the end of a motion).

. . . substituting (paragraph or entire text of a resolution or main motion and inserting

another that is germane).”

An amendment to an amendment is a motion to modify the wording of the proposed amendment and is

made as follows: “I move to amend the amendment by . . .” The same forms for making an amendment are

applicable for making a secondary amendment.

The motion to commit or refer is generally used to send a pending motion (also called “the question”) to

a small group of select persons – a committee, board, or cabinet, for example so that the question may be

studied and put in better condition for the assembly to consider. The motion is stated: “I move to commit

the question to . . . for further study.”

The motion to close debate (previous question), if seconded and approved by a two-thirds vote, stops

discussion and amendment on the pending question and is stated: “I move the previous question.”

A division of the assembly may be called to any one member if the president’s decision on a voice vote is

in question. The member proceeds to the microphone and states: “I call for a division of the house . . .” The

President then takes a standing or roll call vote.

A division of the question may be called when a pending motion relates to a single subject that contains

several parts, each capable of standing as a complete proposition. The parts can be separated, and each

considered and voted on as a proposition. The parts can be separated, and each considered and voted on

as a distinct question. The motion is stated: “I move to divide the question . . . as follows . . .”

The motion to reconsider enables a majority of the assembly to bring back for further consideration a

motion that has already been voted. The purpose of reconsidering a vote is to permit correction of hasty,

ill-advised or erroneous action, to consider added information or a situation that has changed since the vote

was taken.

Parliamentary inquiry is a question directed to the presiding officer to obtain information on parliamentary

law or the rules of the organization as relevant to the business at hand. A member addresses the President

and states: “I rise to a point of parliamentary inquiry.”

Point of information is a request directed to the President or through the President to another officer

or member, for information relevant to the business at hand. The request is not related to parliamentary

procedure. The member addresses the chair and states: “I rise to a point of information.”

The motion to appeal the decision of the President is made at the time the President makes a ruling. If

it is made by a member, and seconded by another member, the question is taken from the President and

vested in the membership for a final decision. The motion is stated: “I move to appeal the decision of the

President.”

Before a member can make a motion or address the assembly on any question, it is necessary that he or she

obtain the floor through recognition by the presiding officer. The member must:

• Rise and proceed to the microphone.

• Address the President by saying, “Madam/Mister President.”

• Await recognition.

• Give name and the Chapter he or she is from.

• State immediately the reason he or she has risen.

PROPOSED RESOLUTION

POPULATION HEALTH:

A School Nurse in Every School, Every Day, All Day

Whereas, We consider that appropriate placement of a school nurse in every school is an essential aspect of

a safe healthcare system, and a step toward population health; and

Whereas, There are no current mandated policies in this state where school nurses are required to be

present in every school, every day, all day; therefore be it

Resolved, That the Kentucky Nurses Association (KNA) urges all nurses across our commonwealth to

immediately support the school nurse in every school, every day, all day initiative.

Resolved, That a committee of six individuals be appointed by the KNA Board of Directors to present this

resolution to the legislators and to bestow upon them prompt action regarding this affair.

A. Monitoring of resolutions

1. The Policy, Procedures, and Resolutions Committee chairperson is responsible for the monitoring of

the implementation of the resolutions.

2. Resolutions will be monitored for five (5) years after adoption.

3. If the intent of the resolution is met before the end of the five-year period, the resolution is

considered completed.

4. If the intent of the resolution has not been met in the five-year period, the Policy, Procedures, and

Resolution Committee will contact the sponsor(s) to determine if they wish to resubmit it.

5. The resolutions flowsheet will be developed and reviewed at the first Board meeting after the annual

meeting and at the March Board meeting.

The KNA School Nurses Chapter is working to increase opportunities for funding to support a nurse in every

school. We have had the support of the Kentucky Youth Advocates to encourage the Cabinet for Health &

Families to amend the state Medicaid plan which would allow for increased billing opportunities in school.

This school-based Medicaid program can help offset the costs of nursing staff. We are happy to share that a

State Plan Amendment was submitted to the Cabinet for Medicaid Services and as of this writing, is waiting

for approval. Several members of the chapter have attended multiple school board meetings in Fayette

County which has resulted in the district developing a plan to add nurses to every school over the next few

years! The group presented on Chapter activities and progress at the July 2019 meeting of the Kentucky

School Nurses Association where they encouraged nurses to become members of both this Chapter and of

the Kentucky Nurses Association.

Our team is meeting every other week work with Sheila Schuster, KNA lobbyist, to develop a plan for

approaching legislators to support presentation of a bill to place a nurse in every school. While that work

is ongoing, several chapter members are researching existing curricula for school nurses so we can support

evidence-based practice in schools that helps ensure students are in classrooms and ready to learn. We

are very excited with this progress and hope to have the voices of all nurses in the state to support this

legislation when it is presented.

in partnership with Murray State University School of Nursing, is more than halfway toward its $30,000

endowment goal. The scholarship is a joint venture between the Kentucky Nurses Association and Murray

State School of Nursing. Murray State will sponsor a fundraiser for the scholarship soon. Michael, acting in

his capacity as an elected official, will also work on a benefit concert for the scholarship.

The Chapter is working on creating a membership drive to encourage more nurses in the area to join KNA.

The Kentucky Nurses Foundation (KNF), a 501©3 organization, is the philanthropic arm of the KNA and has

a long history of supporting nursing scholarships, education and research.

During our last fiscal year, donations to the Kentucky Nurses Foundation (KNF) totaled more than $12,000

to benefit nursing education, scholarships and research. Thanks to all our faithful donors for making this

happen via event support and “Honor a Nurse - Remember a Nurse” contributions.

Along with funding nursing scholarships, Kentucky Nurses Foundation (KNF) funds support the Nightingale

Tribute Program. This program includes a brief ceremony to honor any deceased Registered Nurse (RN) or

Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) for their years of commitment and dedication to nursing. Last fiscal year,

we honored 36 nurses in this special way. We are stepping up our efforts to expand this program and have

included a video of a Tribute on our website at kentucky-nurses.org. Contact the KNA if you would like to

honor a nurse through the Nightingale Tribute Program.

Remember, you can designate the KNF as your charity of choice with your Kroger Rewards card and

through the Amazon Smile program. For details, visit our website.

STATUTORY CHANGES – FY 2018-2019

Senate Bill 84 passed the 2019 General Assembly. This bill licensed certified professional midwives and

places responsibility for them under the Board of Nursing. Certified professional midwives are non-nurse

midwives who are authorized to provide birthing services for low-risk pregnancies.

House Bill 323 amends Kentucky Revised Statute 12.345 to require an agency that issues a license to issue

the license within thirty days of completing all requirements to military personnel and their spouses.

House Bill 342 requires practitioners, such as APRNs, to issue prescriptions for controlled substances

electronically, with some exceptions, beginning January 2020.

House Bill 151 allows the Board of Nursing to take disciplinary action against a nurse for certain illegal

acts related to insurance fraud. It also requires the Board of Nursing, and other licensure boards, to report

knowledge of insurance fraud to the Department of Insurance.

Senate Bill 1 was the School Safety and Resiliency Act. It directs school districts to facilitate the formation

of trauma-informed teams. Registered Nurses with certain experience qualifying them as qualified mental

health professionals under KRS 202A.011(12)(d) may be considered for positions on those teams.

Program Approvals that Coincide with Accreditation Award

• University of the Cumberlands, Williamsburg, KY, was Granted Approval for MSN, APRN, Family Nurse

Practitioner Program of Nursing from January 2018 to December 2023.

Responses/Reports: Factor Analysis Reports

The Board approved the Factor Analysis reports as submitted by the following Programs of Nursing

addressing factors leading to the less than 85% pass rate for two or more years from the following:

• Big Sandy Community & Technical College, ADN Program, Prestonsburg

Kentucky Christian University, BSN Program, Grayson

Kentucky State University, ADN Program, Frankfort

• Spalding University, BSN Program, Louisville

Regulatory Changes

The Board approved revisions to 201 KAR 20:260-360.

• The pass rate benchmark has been adjusted from 85% to 80% in order to align with the national

calculation rate through the National Council of State Boards of Nursing. A survey of member boards

was also conducted and 80% was the average amongst states. The pass rates will include first time

takers of the NCLEX who tested within 12 months of the program completion date. It was extended from

6 to 12 months with the purpose of more adequately measuring benchmarks with other states and the

national average. The new pass rate calculation and benchmark will go into effect January 1, 2020.

• A program of nursing shall no longer use an external, standardized examination, not produced by the

program of nursing, as a determinant for a student’s progression or graduation from a program of

nursing. They may be used to assist in remediation or part of a final course grade. However, it shall

not count for more than 10 percent of the grade. Due to the prevalence of nursing programs using

standardized exams in a “high stakes” manner, the National League for Nursing (NLN) enacted National

Fair Testing Guidelines. NLN recommended that predictor tests should not be used to preclude

graduation or progression, as they are not adequately designed for this purpose. External vendors who

create nursing assessment exams have also cautioned nursing programs in the use of “high stakes”

testing. These vendors do not endorse or suggest examination be used as the sole measure to evaluate

student performance and readiness for graduation. According to an NCSBN Education Consultant

survey (2017), 11 of 37 responding states (29%) have already enacted regulations concerning the use of

external examinations for progression or graduation from a nursing program.
