Nurse practitioner bills

POSTED IN: Legislative Updates,

An update on the status of these bills by the Nurse Practitioners. HB 244 which would expand the distance of collaborative practice as well as the number of NPs a physician could collaborate with was passed out of committee. HB 165 which would have removed many of the aspects of collaborative practice and really expanded their scope of practice did not. HB 823 which would allow the to prescribe more Schedule II drugs is unlikely to go too far this year.
