National Governors Association Acknowledge Barriers to Practice

Congressional Quarterly reported today on the release of a National Governors' Association's report The Role of Nurse Practitioners in Meeting Increasing Demand for Primary Care.
"Nurse practitioners could play a more prominent role in healthcare delivery and states should consider easing laws under which they practice, recommends a new report by the National Governors Association," acknowledged CQ HealthBeat Associate Editor Jane Norman.
The NGA Report further states that, "to better meet the nation's current and growing need for primary care providers, states may want to consider easing their scope of practice restrictions and modifying their reimbursement policies to encourage greater nurse practitioner involvement in the provision of primary care ... Physician groups also may have financial concerns, but a recent analysis found no differences in physician earnings between states that have expanded scope-of-practice laws and those that do not."
