The AMA is strongly urging California Gov. Gavin Newsom to veto a bill—A.B. 890—that would allow nurse practitioners to practice without physician supervision.
In a letter to Newsom, AMA Executive Vice President and CEO James L. Madara, MD, explains that the bill “will not expand access to care in rural and underserved areas, increases overall health care costs and threatens the health and safety of patients in California.”
My latest for the AMA. The whole shebang.
