AB 890 Nurse practitioners:  scope of practice; practice without standardized procedures.

The Appropriations Committee of the California State Senate has scheduled a suspension hearing today for A.B. 890, a bill that would grant full practice authority to nurse practitioners (NPs) without physician supervision. This bill lacks critical details related to NP competency requirements, scope limitations, requirements to serve underserved populations or regions, and other details—which could result in harm to patients. For more information, visit the websites of the California Medical Association.
