Accelerating Impact: How to Support Nurse Practitioners in Expanding Access to Care – California Health Care Foundation

California’s Assembly Bill 890 — which was passed in September 2020 — allows nurse practitioners (NPs) who meet certain criteria the authority to practice without physician supervision. At the time of writing, the law is scheduled to go into effect in 2023.
AB 890 presents opportunities to increase access to health care for Californians, especially those served in the safety net and those who live in rural and underserved areas. This issue brief explores the driving factors and the challenges to implementing AB 890 and expanding NP services in the state from the perspective of NPs, health care leaders, and policy experts. Policymakers, health plans, NPs, communities, and leaders in safety-net settings can use this issue brief to understand how they can support NP practice in the wake of the passage of AB 890.
