Support for APRN Legislation

Take Action to Allow Advanced Practice Registered Nurses to Deliver Quality and Timely Care

Advanced Practice Nurses, we need your support! Two important issues are currently on the table: one in legislation, and the other, a proposal from the Veteran's Health Administration (VHA) to recognize advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs) as full practice providers when providing care in a VA facility. You can make a difference by sharing your voice and spreading the word!

Here are TWO things you can do to support these efforts:


Ask Congress to Support Legislation to Allow Advanced Practice Registered Nurses to Deliver Quality and Timely Care

Key Points:

  • Remove barriers from current state licensure requirements to allow autonomous APRN practice.
  • Ask the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to include APRN as the face-to-face requirement for ordering and signing for durable medical equipment (DME).
