Update on NP and CNM Autonomy: A.B.890 and S.B.1237 Signed into Law
New legislation allowing APRNs to practice independently
On September 29, Gov. Gavin Newsom signed A.B.890, which will finally provide a framework for qualified California nurse practitioners to work without physician supervision.
To practice autonomously, NPs must first receive certification for independent practice. The exact certification requirements will be determined by a new nurse practitioner advisory committee to the BRN, but will include at least three years of “transition-to-practice” experience.
