Take Action on this Legislative Issue

HB 149 – Expanding Access to Healthcare, an omnibus bill including language authorizing independent practice for nurses previously included in the SAVE Act – HB 277, has passed in the NC Senate and will now return to the NC House for a concurrence vote.

Never before has either house of the General Assembly passed a proposal to authorize nurse independent practice. To ensure no further movement of this bill, it is imperative that legislators hear from physicians in their communities.

Please contact your House and Senate members asking them NOT to sponsor this bill or message them by participating in this NCMS Action Alert on this page.
