Verification of Registered Nurse Competency to Perform Texas Health Steps Checkups form in DOC [1.03MB] or PDF [201KB]

Registered nurses (RNs) without CNS, NP, or CNM certification may provide medical checkups only under direct physician supervision, meaning the physician is either on site during the checkup or immediately available to furnish assistance and direction to the RN during the checkup. When a physician has delegated a complete THSteps medical checkup to an RN, the physician must establish the RN’s competency to perform the service prior to the delegation as required by the physician’s scope of practice. The delegating physician provider is responsible for the direct supervision of the RN performing the delegated service and remains responsible for any service provided to the client. Prior to performing a checkup the RN must complete the required training modules which are included in this optional competency verification form. The RN or the RN’s employer must maintain documentation of course completion in the employee’s record.
