During this time of system reform, nursing needs to be positioned to maximize -our strengths.    Legislative restrictions on advanced practice nursing need to be eliminated.   Here are some key messages.     Talk it up!

  • APNs are trusted professionals who are well tested in the community with a long track record of quality & safety. 

 

  • When APNs are allowed to practice fully, they can provide care that is more economical and better than our current health care system allows and this savings can be passed on to the state and to consumers.

 

  • Government is in the way, and the legislature needs to act to remove regulatory barriers which prevent APNs from fully practicing to meet the needs of the public.
