There were over 100 nurse practitioners, representing various districts across California, met at the Sheraton Grand Hotel in Sacramento for a morning program reviewing and discussing various legislative bills such as;

  •  Assembly Bill 1560 (Friedman), sponsored by CANP, which would increase the number of NPs a physician is permitted to supervise from 4 to 18. This bill would expand the ability for NPs to work in multiple settings, often in medically underserved areas and clinic systems that may only have one MD working as a medical director but multiple physical locations providing patient care.
  • Senate Bill 554 (Stone), which would codify recent federal law that allows allow NPs and PAs to receive a waiver from the DEA and the authority to prescribe medication for opioid addiction treatment.
  • Assembly Bill 1368 (Calderon), which would authorize a physician to designate a physician assistant or nurse practitioner to sign any required authorization form for Medi-Cal benefits and services.
