Scope of Practice
Scope of Practice is a terminology used by licensing boards for various professions that defines the procedures, actions, and processes that are permitted for the licensed individual. The scope of practice is limited to that which the individual has received education and experience, and in which he/she has demonstrated competency. Each state has specific regulation based on entry education and additional training and practice.

Governing bodies are generally at the state level. In some cases, federal guidelines / regulations exist. For emergency medical services, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in the U. S. Department of Transportation has a national Scope of Practice.
