The NPA is proud to announce that 2 more bills that were part of our 2017 legislative priorities were signed into law November 29, 2017 by Governor Cuomo! The two bills are:
- DNR Bill (S.1869 Hannon / A. 7277 Gottfried): Authorizes nurse practitioners to execute orders not to resuscitate and orders relating to life sustaining treatments
- NP Civil Service Bill (A.834 Gunther/S.3567 Hannon): Directs the president of the civil service commission to study and publish a report on nurse practitioners
The bill that was already signed into law earlier this year was:
- Automated External Defibrillators (AED) Bill (S.5718 Hannon / A. 7532 (Gottfried): An act to amend the public health law, in relation to automated external defibrillators and nurse practitioners/physician assistants
When there are literally thousands of bills introduced in the State Legislature every year, it is unprecedented to have 3 bills that were part of our legislative priorities pass into law in a single session!
