Coming in 2018: NPs to order new diagnostic tests

Starting April 1, 2018, NPs will be authorized to order all X-rays. This is the result of changes in the Healing Arts Radiation Protection Act, 1990.

Until then, NPs can only order x-rays according to the current list.

You can find the current list in the Nurse Practitioner practice standard and on the NP page. We will inform NPs about other changes to the diagnostic test list when the information becomes available.
