Navigating New Laws: CAFP Guide to Nurse Practitioner Independent Practice Provider Attestation

Recent legislation, AB 890(Nurse practitioners: scope of practice: practice without standardized procedures, Wood, 2020) created two new categories of nurse practitioners (commonly referred to as "103 NPs" and "104 NPs) effectively expanding their scope of practice. This new law, which went into effect January 1, 2021, carries significant legal impacts for family physicians.

The information provided describes the new Nurse Practitioner Independent Practice Provider Attestation (Attestation) law, the Attestation certification process, some legal risks family physicians should consider when making an Attestation, and actions physicians might take to lower those risks.
CAFP has created a brief to help CAFP members understand the new Attestation certification process. Please view it here. In addition, CAFP will be hosting a complementary webinar on the new law where you can ask questions in real time. Please be on the lookout for weekly legislative updates and CAFP communications.
