PENNSYLVANIA INTRODUCES FULL PRACTICE AUTHORITY LEGISLATION
Legislation that would close the gap between the level of care that NPs are prepared to provide and the limited amount of care that the current dated state law allows patients to directly access. Read the full bill here and check out the Pennsylvania Coalition of Nurse Practitioners (PCNP) “The Fact & The Fit” sheet. AANP members are encouraged to watch their emails for PA member specific action steps to support this bill, and connect with the PCNP, an AANP NP organization member. Other states with active legislation include: California, Massachusetts, Michigan and New Jersey.
