HB 793

  Thank you for allowing me to comment on the above Bill and its implementation period.I have been a Nurse Practitioner in the Fairfax County section of Northern Virginia for almost 25 years.I fully agree with a five-year period of experience in collaboration with a physician colleague. The mentorship which I obtained from my physician colleagues was invaluable.  I agree with others who have recommended that the process of documenting and attesting to the five years of experience not be overly difficult, especially for our colleagues who have traveled from other states or who have worked with the government and with the military  during that five-year timeperiod. I disagree with the use of practice administrators, corporate or hospital administrators or other non-medical people giving any type of input which could affect our attestation period.  Again, thank you for considering my comments.
