NURSING CALL TO ACTION TEST DAY as we BUILD and ASSESS our Georgia Nurses Grassroots network
GEORGIA Nurses ....today we are having a NURSING CALL TO ACTION TEST DAY as we BUILD and ASSESS our Georgia Nurses Grassroots network to respond to legislative call to actions during the legislative session and throughout the year. As you may know we have numerous upcoming legislative initiatives including a RN Nursing Compact Licensing Bill and a Study Committee Bill aiming to explore how the APRN Workforce can help improve Georgians Access to Care (when barriers to APRN practice are removed).
Please immediately complete the survey and forward the link to other RNs, APRNs, APRN/RN program faculty and students, and nurses who are interested in APRN/RN issues in your organization or association.
Please fill out survey below.
Message from the AACNS President:
We need CNS APRN representation at the Capital to support Senator Renee Unterman during the upcoming legislative sessions. There is strength in numbers. We need to stand united to show our constituent backing. Please see below for the 2017 initiatives. Please also encourage sign ups from our nurses and students. There are also sign-ups for Legislative Boot Camp for learn how to effectively advocate with talking points to legislation for our healthcare access in Georgia and the nursing profession.
Senator Unterman has 3 main initiatives for 2017:
1) Compact Nursing Licensure is being reintroduced
2) Study Proposal for APRN full practice authority to improve healthcare access for Georgians
3) Tax incentives for APRN preceptorship
Thank you for your time and support.
