If not handled properly, the potential for increased autonomy may also prove dangerous. It is possible to make mistakes that could have serious consequences on patients if they are not properly supervised. It is also proposed that nurses receive ongoing training to keep up with the latest technologies, treatments and standards. The nurses will be able to provide the best care possible while remaining within their scope of practice.
This bill will allow nurses to be more flexible while still staying up-to date on the latest practices and procedures.
