State Representative Anne Gonzales (R-Westerville) applauded today’s passage of Senate Bill 110, sponsored by Senator Dave Burke (R-Maryville). SB 110 seeks to permit advanced practice registered nurses with prescriptive authority to delegate the administration of certain medications for patients to qualified individuals, and changes the laws governing the practice of physician assistants to allow them to practice to the full extent of their training by removing statutory barriers to practice and updating provisions.
Rep. Gonzales, who serves as the Chair of the House Health and Aging Committee, commented on the passage of the bill:
“This bill is a much needed reform for how our mid-level providers provide care in our state. By allowing Physician Assistants to practice at the full scope of their education and letting Advanced Practice Nurses to delegate some of their authority, Ohio is moving in the correct direction with our health care policy.”
