Advance nurses' rules eased


ST. PAUL - Minnesota's advance practice registered nurses would have more freedom to practice without a formal arrangement with a doctor under a bill headed to Gov. Mark Dayton.

Current law requires the advance nurses to only work under a written agreement with a doctor. The bill would eliminate that mandate, allowing the nurses to continue to work even when the doctor leaves.
