~~~HB 66 NOW Allows NPs to sign death certificates~~~
The ammendments of HB 66, which now advocates for Nurse Practitioners to legally sign death certificates for their patients in Utah, successfully passed through the House and Senate. The next and final step is the presentation of this bill to our Governor for signature and implementation.
Thank you Representative Last for running this Bill. The Utah Nurse Practitioners Association appreciates your time and dedication with the ammendments to HB 66.
