REMINDER: Although the Independent Practice Law goes into effect 7/1/2020, APRNs will NOT automatically assume autonomous practice on that date.  There will be an application process which has not yet been made available or been determined by the Board of Nursing.  



As of April 30th, CMS has issued an interim final rule that permanently implements Section 3708 of the CARES Act.  Please visit our new pages, Cares Act 2020Coronavirus and Independent Practice Q&A, for more information.  Make sure to stay updated and look at how you can help during this pandemic.



Just like during the legislative session, we need your help!  We launched our own petition to advocate for removal of supervisory protocols for the COVID-19 crisis temporarily, please sign & send it here.  We need everyone to take action and work together so that we are heard and so we can help!!
