Practice Independence for Advanced Practitioners 3-4-20
Many states have autonomous practice for advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs), and even more have introduced bills that would reduce practice restrictions on APRNs and physician assistants (PAs). Having greater practice freedom is a great benefit to those practitioners, but it can bring its own issues and complications. Join Patrick as he gives a brief overview of NP and PA practice autonomy, reviews pending bills, and discusses issues and uncertainties that come with autonomy.
