Kansas Nursing Licensure Bills Stall

Jul 07, 2016

Bills that would have added advanced practice nurses in Kansas to the definition of “licensed practitioners” and exempt them from the provisions outlined in the state’s radiologic technology licensure law have stalled in the state legislature and are no longer eligible for consideration.

House Bill 2122 and Senate Bill 69 were introduced in January 2015 and were met with opposition from several groups including the Kansas Society of Radiologic Technologists and ASRT. The KSRT closely monitored the bills and worked with lawmakers in Topeka to educate them about the need to have educated and qualified radiologic technologists perform medical imaging procedures. The Kansas Legislature adjourned on June 1 without taking any committee action or floor action on H.B. 2122 or S.B. 69.

ASRT and KSRT expect these bills to be reintroduced in the 2017-2018 Kansas legislative session.
