Governor Lujan-Grisham Signs HB280

HB280, the Nurse and Midwife Privilege Parity bill passed the House and Senate during the 2019 legislative session and was waiting for the Governor's signature. NMNPC thanks our members who contacted Governor Lujan-Grisham to urge her to sign this ground-breaking legislation - she signed it into law on April 2. This makes New Mexico the first and only state in the country requiring that "a health facility shall establish the same criteria for granting patient admitting or discharge privileges or in authorizing continuing patient care for certified nurse practitioners, certified nurse-midwives and clinical nurse specialists as the health facility has established for physicians." We were able to achieve this significant right thanks to the dedicated work of the NMNPC lobbyist, Linda Siegle.
