|The Boards of Nursing Medicine have amended regulations for nurse practitioners and prescriptive authority for nurse practitioners to conform regulations to changes made to the Code of Virginia by passage of HB580 (Chapter 93) and SB463 (Chapter 495) in the 2016 General Assembly. The changes relate to the deletion of a requirement for certified registered nurse anesthetists to have a practice agreement with a supervising physician and the modification of the practice model for certified nurse midwives who now practice in consultation with a physician. With the changes in requirements for practice agreements, that section of 18VAC90-30 was deleted and moved to the section for the practice of nurse practitioners licensed in categories other than certified registered nurse anesthetist and certified nurse midwife.
