I am disappointed in the outcome of this bill. I feel that VCNP has settled for an 'anything is better than nothing' approach and has caved to the political pressure of the organization not in support of autonomous practice for NP's. I would hope that VCNP would continue to pressure for ammendments that lift restrictions. I do agree that there should be a waiting period for new graduate NP's especially for those with limited nursing experience. Five years, I feel is excessive. I feel that Virginia continues to remain an outlier with this bill.
