There are two bills in the House Omnibus bill and one to the Senate Omnibus bill.  The Senate bill removes barriers to Advanced Practice Registered Nurse practice (APRN) and allows us to perform at the top of our lisence.  The House bill has one amendment that mirrors the Senate bill and the other seeks to add more restrictions to APRN practice, essentially unraveling all we have accomplished since 1995.  Please use the link below and send a letter to your representative or senator urging them to vote YES on HF 435 and SF 511 and vote NO on HF 2803.

We appreciate your support in this extremely important legislative issue.
