Yeah!!! SB 61 passed in the Senate 30-0! This bill will eliminate the current requirement for Nurse Practitioners and Nurse Midwives to have a collaborative agreement with an MD. It will allow us to have more independent practice, and to our full scope of practice. It should keep medical costs low, and increase patient access to options. Thanks to all of you who contacted your Senators in SD. It should be heard in the House around Feb 7, so hoping it will pass there also.
