Missouri Board of Registration for the Healing Arts

Assistant Physician Licensure

Senate bills 716 and 754 were signed by Governor Nixon and established licensure for Assistant Physicians. These bills will become law effective August 28, 2014. However, before the Board can accept applications, the Board will need to establish rules related to licensure, including submission of applications, renewal, supervision, and other matters necessary to protect the public.

The rule promulgation process is lengthy; therefore, we do not anticipate the licensure of Assistant Physicians to begin until at least the summer or fall of 2015. We will continue to update the website as information becomes available.

The Supreme Court of Missouri ruled in Missouri Association of Nurse Anesthetists, Inc. v. State Bd. of Registration for Healing Arts, 343 S.W.3d 348 (Mo. 2011) that a state agency cannot make a statement of general applicability, including answering general questions or interpreting or clarifying statutes, without going through a formal rulemaking process.
