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
- 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).
Support the current VHA proposal to recognize APRNs as full practice providers when providing care in a VA facility.
