Minnesota Rep Sponsors Nurse Licensure Compact Legislation

DFL Rep. Kim Norton of Rochester has again introduced legislation in the Minnesota legislature to have the state join the Nurse Licensure Compact.

A streamlined licensure process will recognize the changing way that healthcare is being provided, through tools such as telemedicine, according to supporters of Rep. Norton’s proposal.

The Robert J. Waters Center for Telehealth and e-Health Law’s staff spoke to Rep. Norton’s office today to determine the status of her legislation in the current Minnesota Legislative Session.

According to her staff, Rep. Norton’s bill passed the Minnesota legislature last year, but was vetoed by Minnesota’s Governor, Mark Dayton.  She has again reintroduced her bill, and it is working it’s way through the legislative process.
