Scope of Practice

Success in Nevada State Senate!

Good afternoon, everyone! I hope your summers are going splendidly. I have some fantastic news to share with you all. The Nevada State Senate recently passed into law the bill allowing medical assistants to administer medications under the supervision of a physician. You’ll remember that Nevada State Society President Carol Cohen and I worked on such matters earlier this spring (See “Right-to-practice Issues in Nevada“). We were hopeful that the bill would pass the Senate, and that hope proved justified. You can review the final text of the bill at http://www.leg.state.nv.us/Session/76th2011/Bills/SB/SB294_EN.pdf. Thank you again for all of your support!
