common-sense policy

Even in reviewing this small comment section, one can see the various challenges that NPs may face with the attestation process. I look forward to completing my Doctor of Advanced Nursing Practice in 2020. Currently, I am a resident of northern Virginia, but I hope to move to a more rural area in the future to bring primary care to underserved populations. I sincerely hope the attestation process is made simple, allowing the heart of the bill the shine. If we make the process of submitting for independent licensure overly complex, then we are missing the point of what this legislation is trying to achieve. I, respectively, urge the board to honor the heart of the law by developing a common-sense attestation policy.
