Thank you for the opportunity to provide public comment. I have been a nurse practitioner (NP) for 20 years practicing in a variety of settings in Virginia and overseas. Completion of graduate education and national board certification deem that I am a competent clinician. As a small business owner in a solo NP practice, implementing the following requirements places a financial burden and hardship on the business as well as barriers to growing the practice and providing patient care.
Please keep this in mind as rules are being promulgated.
