Standard Occupational Classification

Response to Comment on 2010 SOC:
Docket Number 08-0315

Docket No. 08-0315 requested a new detailed occupation for "Clinical Nurse Specialists without prescriptive authority." The SOCPC did not accept this recommendation, based on Classification Principle 1 which states that occupations are assigned to only one occupational category and Classification Principle 9 on collectability. The SOCPC questioned whether agencies are able to collect and report data on "Clinical Nurse Specialists without prescriptive authority" separately from data on other nurses.
