Utah to allow nurse practitioners to provide direct primary care

Posted On: Mar. 20, 2023 9:57 AM CST

Utah Gov. Spencer Cox has signed into law legislation that allows nurse practitioners in the state to practice independently, no longer requiring supervision by a physician, Forbes reports. There are now 27 states plus the District of Columbia and two U.S. territories that have awarded such “full practice authority” to NPs, which ends the state-mandated contract with a physician.
