Most Think Nurse Practitioners Should Have Full Practice Authority [CA]

Posted over 3 years ago by Nicholas M Perrino

"One in four Californians supports the right of nurse practitioners to function as primary-care providers instead of having to work under the supervision of a doctor, according to a new AARP survey.

AARP California supports state Senate Bill 323, which would expand nurse-practitioner responsibilities. The group's advocacy director, Blanca Castro, says the state's 18,000 nurse practitioners already have the training to handle routine medical care."
