  • 2017 APRN Full Practice Authority

Update: February 13, 2017

1. SB 1133 certified Nurse midwives; nurse practitioners: This bill was passed by unanimous votes in Senate last week and has been forwarded to the House. APRNS in Arizona have one of the strongest Nurse Practice Acts in the country regarding Scope of Practice language. The current bill addresses some further language issues which involve insurance and environmental situations. 

2. SB1336 nurse anesthetists; prescribing authority; limitation. This bill was passed 6/1 by the Senate Health and Human Services Committee on Feb. 8. The committee approved the bill with the understanding that the disagreements by the stakeholders on issues of pain management and “direction” be agreed upon before the bill is forwarded to the rules committee and then to the Senate for a vote.
