Important Update: Oregon Governor Signs Two Bills Removing Practice Barriers for CRNAs

Oregon SB 128 has been enacted. This bill allows the Oregon Board of Medical Imaging to issue a permit to APRNs (including CRNAs) to supervise fluoroscopy. The Oregon Association of Nurse Anesthetists introduced this bill to create a path for CRNAs to supervise fluoroscopy.

OR SB 136 has been enacted. This bill expands CRNA prescriptive authority by removing the 10-day supply limitation, thereby giving CRNAs full prescriptive authority.

The AANA State Government Affairs division worked closely with ORANA to support ORANA’s efforts in passing these bills. SGA’s collaboration with ORANA included AANA letters of support sent to the bill sponsors, strategic calls with ORANA leadership and lobbying teams, and materials to help local CRNAs advocate for the passage of these bills.
