Business and Professions Code Section 2701

(a) There is in the Department of Consumer Affairs the Board of Registered Nursing consisting of nine members.
(b) Within the meaning of this chapter, board, or the board, refers to the Board of Registered Nursing. Any reference in state law to the Board of Nurse Examiners of the State of California or California Board of Nursing Education and Nurse Registration shall be construed to refer to the Board of Registered Nursing.
(c) This section shall remain in effect only until January 1, 2012, and as of that date is repealed, unless a later enacted statute, that is enacted before January 1, 2012, deletes or extends that date. The repeal of this section renders the board subject to the review required by Division 1.2 (commencing with Section 473). [Amended by Stats. 2010, Ch. 695, Sec. 8. Effective January 1, 2011.

Two members shall be licensed registered nurses under the provisions of this chapter, each of whom shall be active in the practice of his or her profession engaged primarily in direct patient care with at least five continuous years of experience, and who shall not be engaged as an educator or administrator of a nursing education program under the provisions of this chapter. One member shall be a licensed registered nurse who shall be active as an advanced practice registered nurse as defined in Section 2725.5. One member shall be a licensed registered nurse under the provisions of this chapter who shall be active as an educator or administrator in an approved program to train registered nurses.
