OR Senate Bill 128

Senate Bill 128, which will allow Advanced Practice Registered Nurses to supervise licensed radiologic technologists in the performance of fluoroscopy procedures, was passed in both the Senate and the House of Representatives and Gov. Kate Brown signed it into law on May 20, 2019. A copy of the Enrolled Bill is located at this link.

Highlights of the bill:

  • APRNs will not be allowed to operate fluoroscopy units, but can only supervise the performance of fluoroscopy by licensed radiologic technologists. There are no provisions in SB 128 that allow APRNs to operate the imaging equipment. This will require radiologic technologists to be diligent and not let APRNs operate fluoroscopy equipment.
  • APRNs have to meet fluoroscopy-specific educational and fluoroscopy examination requirements as defined by the Oregon Board of Medical Imaging. 

There is additional information on the Oregon Legislative page or in the OBMI June newsletter.
