HB 793 Proposed Regulations

Dear Members of the Committee of the Joint Boards of Nursing and Medicine,

The American Association of Nurse Practitioners (AANP) appreciates the opportunity to respond to the request by the Boards of Medicine and Nursing for public comment on the promulgation of regulations to implement HB793 (Chapter 776 of 2018 General Assembly). In drafting regulations, AANP would encourage the boards to be as flexible as the new law allows and to avoid adding new requirements or restrictions that are in excess of those required under the previous career-long nurse-physician contracted agreements. AANP looks forward to providing added comment when a copy of proposed rule is available for public comment.
