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) 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.
CMA has also 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 and will also be provided to webinar registrants regardless of membership status.
If you are unable to attend the live webinar, it will be available for on-demand viewing at cmadocs.org/webinars.
