Nevada Board Considers Changes to Existing Regulations

On February 2, 2011, the Nevada State Board of Massage Therapists (NSBMT) held a workshop to solicit comments on the following topics it has included in proposed regulations: education requirements, requirements for restroom signage, changes to the existing regulation regarding unethical or unprofessional conduct, and a new requirement for a “managing therapist.” ABMP disagrees with much of the proposal related to the requirement of a “managing therapist.” Read ABMP’s comments. At the next NSBMT meeting, scheduled for April 14, 2011, the attorney hired by the board to draft the regulation will present his findings and comments from the workshop held in February. The board will then further discuss the issue and decide on how to proceed. ABMP will further advise members after the April meeting.
