Health Workforce Shortage Study Work Group

In May 2008, as part of its health reform efforts, the Minnesota Legislature passed legislation (SF 3780, Article 2, section 5) that requires "the commissioner of health, in consultation with the health licensing boards and professional associations, shall study changes necessary in health professional licensure and regulation to ensure full utilization of advanced practice registered nurses, physician assistants, and other licensed health care professionals in the health care home and primary care delivery system. The commissioner shall make recommendations to the legislature by January 15, 2009."
