RALEIGH, NC — A bipartisan group of state lawmakers discussed House Bill 88 in committee this week, which seeks to update laws regarding the practices of nurses in the state, especially when it comes to administering anesthesia. The Modernize Nursing Practice Act came before the House Health Committee for discussion Wednesday, giving committee members an opportunity to review the bill’s details and listen to public comment both for and against the measure.  “I want to stress: We are not asking for an expansion of the scope of practice for nurse anesthetists in any of this legislation,” said Dobson. “We are not asking for them to be able to do anything that they are not currently authorized to do in North Carolina.”
