APRN Study Resolution

We have good news.  

The resolution for the study on the feasibility of changes to the regulatory requirements of advanced practice registered nurses, HCR122, passed this session. The resolution means that the Joint Standing Committee on Government Organization will evaluate APRN issues this summer, and we will have the presentations of the PERD response in September. These steps are critical so that the Committee on Government Organization can recommend moving forward in removing the barriers to practice for all APRNs 2015 legislation.

Thanks to everyone for all the hard work so far. We cannot relax yet.  
These next steps will take a lot of hard work, and we hope we can count on everyone to pitch in any way they can.  

Please watch your emails for updates and action requests as AANP works with the West Virginia Nurses Association and other WV partners to improve access to NP services. We need everyone involved and on their A game. Working together is our best strength.
