AB 890 by Assemblymember Jim Wood, DDS, grants full practice authority to nurse practitioners. This bill would remove critical patient protections by allowing NPs to practice without physician supervision.

AB 890 is merely an outline of a major policy change which lacks critical details related to nurse practitioner competency requirements, scope limitations, and requirements to actually serve underserved populations or regions. As it stands, it is a dangerous bill to move forward and will still do nothing to improve access to health care in California. This bill can be heard as early as Monday, August 17.
