The SAVE Act - House Bill 185 & Senate Bill 143
On February 26, 2019, legislators, patient advocates and NCNA announced the introduction of the SAVE Act, a bill to grant full practice authority for Advanced Practice Registered Nurses. When the 2020 session ended, the bill was effectively killed and will have to be reintroduced in 2021. This bill would grant full practice authority to Advanced Practice Registered Nurses, which has been one of NCNA’s highest priorities for several years.
