Successful Transition of Hospitals to New Requirements Under AB 890 Webinar

Originally recorded November 16, 2020



On September 29, 2020, Governor Newsom signed AB 890 into law. AB 890 allows nurse practioners to work without physician supervision, removing the supervisory requirement in existing law.

Understanding the nuances of this new law is vital. Many of the changes will have an impact on facility staff management, cultural norms, and patient care.  And while there are still some questions to be answered about the new law, understanding the intent, the content, and timelines associated with AB 890 will ensure you and your teams are prepared for what lies ahead. 

Who should participate
COOs, CNOs, credentialing and privileging, quality & safety, HR, and legal staff
