Nurse Practitioner Independent Practice Coming Up For a Vote!
HB 1013, the measure to allow nurse practitioners to practice independently, passed out of committee this week and will be voted on by the full House of Representatives next Wednesday.
HB 1013 would remove any requirement that nurse practitioners be supervised by a physician. We believe this is not in the best interest of patient safety and question why we should create a two-tier health care system for urban vs. rural citizens.
