NP Bill Hearings Scheduled!
We have both a Senate (SB723) and a House bill (HB999): the Nurse Practitioner Full Practice Authority Act of 2015.
Hearing dates are in the House, March 10, and in the Senate, March 18.
Right now we need letters from physicians and signatures of support to take with as we testify in front of the Senate's Education, Health, and Environmental Affairs (EHEA) and the House's Health and Government Operations (HGO) committees.
On the APRNPractice.org website, go to Resources and then Educating the public. At the bottom of the page, you can download a sample support letter and a signature sheet. Email (APRN.Practice.firstname.lastname@example.org) or fax (410-544-5939) us your completed sheets and letters.
If you become a follower of the site, you will receive almost instantaneous updates as we proceed through the next few months. I will continue to send emails but that information will arrive more slowly.
