S563 and H4278 will remove “supervision” which modernizes the language currently in the Nurse Practice Act.
CRNAs work under a Written Guideline that is approved within each facility. CRNAs will continue to work under these Written Guidelines, allowing the practice facility to determine the credentialing of the CRNA.
This is not a practice expansion bill for CRNAs.
40 states and the District of Columbia have no “supervision” requirements concerning nurse anesthetists in nurse practice acts, board of nursing rules/regulations, medical practice acts, board of medicine rules/regulations, or their generic equivalents. See No Supervision Requirement Map.
4 states have pending bills to remove “supervision” language in 2020. 3 states have bills that have passed committee.*
