APRN scope of practice expansion bill threatens safety of patients — Speak out
From Dec. 3:
The 2014 Legislative session is around the corner. You may recall during the 2013 Legislative session, the APRNs introduced a bill (HB 2251) which would dissolve the collaborative practice agreement between a physician and an APRN. The bill did not advance but the bill is getting attention for the 2014 Legislative session. This proposal eliminates any requirement that APRNs work with physician supervision or collaboration and would allow nurses to practice medicine and surgery without any statutory limitation on the functions they could perform.
