BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section  1. It is the policy of this state to pursue equitable compen-
sation for similar titles/duties within the state workforce and  provide
for  opportunities  for career advancement. Compensation should be based

tioner. The study and report shall include, but not be limited to:

that should be made to more accurately reflect the actual duties;
  (b) determination if the current  grade  24  adequately  reflects  the
actual complexity of responsibilities and duties;
  (c)  the identification of a career ladder to be utilized in line with
other professionals such as registered nurses, social workers, rehabili-
tation counselors, dentists and doctors; and
  (d) recognition of board certification as part of the career ladder.
  S 3. The president of the civil service commission shall determine  if
there is a need to make changes to the nurse practitioner title based on
