Assembly Bill 890 (Wood), signed into law in September 2020, created two new classifications of nurse practitioners (NPs) – 103 and 104 NPs – who can perform certain functions without standardized procedures and protocols in California. The regulations implementing the bill became effective January 1, 2023, and set the minimum standards for the law’s "transition to practice" requirements for NPs seeking to apply for licensure under these classifications. NPs can elect, but are not required, to transition to these new classifications.
The California Medical Association (CMA) is hosting a webinar on Thursday, February 23, 2023, to provide an overview of the law and regulations, explain under what circumstances 103 and 104 NPs can practice and where, and show how this may impact physicians and patients.
The one-hour webinar – New NP Classifications: What Physicians Need to Know – is free to CMA members and their staff, and $99 for all other interested parties. Click here for more information or to register.
