HB 336

Nurse Practice Act Amendments

This bill will eliminate the requirement that an advanced practice nurse practitioner must complete 2,000 hours of work before he or she can prescribe Schedule II controlled substances without a consultation or referral plan. With ever rising costs of healthcare, having more choices and access to providers is critical. With a deficit of primary care physicians, and a surplus of primary care nurse practitioners expected by 2025, this bill is timely and necessary.
