As New Jersey's 2022-2023 legislative session continues, so does the threat that the APN direct practice legislation (S-1522/A-2286) poses to dismantle physician- led, team-based care in our state. The bill makes drastic changes to current practice by authorizing CRNAs to administer anesthesia without physician supervision, permitting CRNAs to supervise other CRNAs, and creating a new form of licensure called an APN-Anesthesia.

At the end of December, the legislation moved out of the Senate Health Committee and now has the potential to be voted out of the full Senate before the summer recess. The next few months are critical in our fight to preserve team-based care, protect our patients, and educate lawmakers.
