In 6 states –Pennsylvania, Maryland, Illinois, Iowa, Rhode Island, New York, and Massachusetts – legislative efforts are gaining steam to license NDs. In 3 other states – Connecticut, California, and Utah – ND associations are working to expand scope of practice. And in Idaho, an effort is progressing to renew ND licensure given that there is no board to oversee the profession. (NDs officially became licensed there in 2004 but new legislation is needed.)
