CMA publishes guide for physicians on new NP classifications

February 08, 2023

Regulations creating two new classifications of nurse practitioners (NPs) – 103 and 104 NPs – took effect on January 1, 2023. Authorized under AB 890 (Wood), signed into law in September 2020, these new NPs can perform certain functions without standardized procedures and protocols in California.

The California Medical Association (CMA) has published a new guide – New NP Classifications: A Physician’s Guide to AB 890 – to help physicians understand the new law and the minimum "transition to practice" standards for NPs seeking to apply for licensure under these classifications. This guide is available free to members only.

CMA is also 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.
