Many of you are already aware that a petition has been posted on the White House website asking the Obama administration to remove barriers that prevent APRNs from practicing to their full scope. 

The petition is part of  “We the People,” a platform on the White House website where individuals can create and sign petitions that call for action by the federal government on a range of issues facing our nation. If a petition gathers enough signatures, it will be reviewed by White House staff and receive an official response.

In order to get a response from the White House, the petition needs to garner 100,000 signatures in 30 days.  There are currently 4,200 signatures on this petition. The deadline for the current petition is April 22, 2013.   

Sign the petition today

Yours in Independence & Partnership,

Elaine Crain
