This bill eases licensing restrictions for professions like nurses, physical therapists, and clinical social workers. While we need more people to take on these jobs, I don’t think the best way to do that is to require less stringent requirements to be licensed to do such important work.
The Governor may see this as “cutting red tape” but we should not be cutting corners when it comes to certifying that healthcare professionals have the skills to treat patients.
