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.
