Welcome to the NPATCH Homepage

The Nurse Physician Advisory Task Force for Colorado Healthcare (NPATCH) is a healthcare policy task force that is housed in the Division of Professions and Occupations at the Department of Regulatory Agencies (DORA). NPATCH was created in 2009.

Its focus on policy is unique within the Division. The Governor appoints the Task Force‚ 12 members, comprised of five physicians, five nurses and two consumer representatives.
