Members sought for Nebraska state health boards

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - The Nebraska State Board of Health is recruiting members to serve on five of its professional boards.  New professional members are required to be Nebraska residents who are actively engaged in practice, with a license in good standing. Residents who represent a consumer perspective may be eligible for the public member seats, if they are not licensed in the particular area that the board regulates.  The openings are on the boards of Advanced Practice Registered Nurses, Hearing Instrument Specialists, Massage Therapy, Medicine and Surgery and Physical Therapy.  The appointments are partial terms, due to resignations. Members are eligible to serve up to two full, five-year terms after they complete the partial term.
