Take Action on this Legislative Issue

The 2022 NC General Assembly short session began earlier this week, and North Carolina nurses are aggressively seeking passage of legislation that would allow Nurse Practitioners (NP), Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists (CRNA) and Certified Nurse Midwives (CNM) to practice without the required supervision of a physician, the SAVE Act – HB 277/SB 249.

The NCMS opposes the SAVE Act. View the bill summary here, and learn more information about team-based care here.

We need your help in sharing your opposition to these bills with legislators. Please contact your House and Senate members asking them NOT to sponsor this bill by participating in this NCMS Action Alert on this page.
