Description

Nurse practitioners; certified nurse midwives; practicing without a patient care team or practice agreement. Authorizes a nurse practitioner licensed by the Boards of Medicine and Nursing in the category of certified nurse midwife to practice without the requirement for collaboration and consultation with a patient care team physician as part of a patient care team or a written or electronic practice agreement between the licensed nurse practitioner and a licensed physician. Under current law, such practice is authorized only under a Department of Health pilot program. The bill grants prescriptive authority to such nurse practitioners and directs the Boards of Medicine and Nursing to jointly promulgate regulations governing such practice. Finally, the bill repeals the pilot program authorizing such practice as obsolete. Amends § 54.1-2901, § 54.1-2914, § 54.1-2957, § 54.1-2957.01, § 54.1-2957.03, § 54.1-2957.9, § 54.1-3401, of the Code of Virginia. Read the Bill »
