We've got more big news to report out of the General Assembly! SB 695 Modernize Nursing Practice Act has a companion bill in the House!
Just before the filing deadline, Rep. Marilyn Avila (R-Wake), Rep. Josh Dobson (R-McDowell), Rep. Sarah Stevens (R-Surry), and Rep. Donny Lambeth (R-Forsyth) filed HB 807 Modernize Nursing Practice Act. The two bills would both remove practice barriers including physician supervision for Nurse Practitioners, Certified Nurse Midwives, and Clinical Nurse Specialists -- and would ensure that all APRNs will be solely regulated by the Board of Nursing.
As the companion bills in both the House and the Senate progress, we will be sure to give you updates.
We realize many of you are eager to contact your representatives. Now is not quite that moment, but we promise: when we need your help with grassroots support, we will let you know as soon as possible. I guarantee it will not be a long wait!
This is an exciting time for APRNs
