In support of reducing VA NP practice restrictions

I am in support of this legislation as proposed. In accordance with the IOM’s Future of Nursing report, nurses should practice to the full extent of their education and training. Autonomous practice for NPs will allow for improved access to care for the residents of Virginia. As a newly trained provider deciding where to practice, practice restrictions can be a deterrent to practicing in that state. This legislation is a step in the right direction.
