No Nurse Practice Act for Michigan?

  1. I'm new to this site. I found it when I was attempting to get some info regarding Michigan's Nurse Practice Act. I saw a brief posting stating that Michigan has no nurse practice act. Can this be true?

    The nurse practice code in MI is found in the MI public health code.

    Michigan Nurses Association - History

    In 1909, MNA's efforts resulted in the passage of the first Nursing Practice Act. During the years that followed, MNA worked to safeguard and promote the nursing profession and fought for the rights of nurses and their patients.

    During the 1980s, MNA assisted in rewriting the Public Health Code and was addressing a variety of issues such as third-party reimbursement for nurses in advanced practice, establishing a Political Action Committee (MNA-PAC) that currently ranks in the top 20 PACs in Michigan, and addressing the nursing shortage.
