On February 9th, Representative Stephanie Klick and Representative Donna Howard announced HB 1415/SB 681, a full practice authority bill that would remove outdated and costly barriers to Advanced Practice Registered Nurses (APRNs) and allow these health care providers to practice to the full extent of their training and education.
“We need every single health care provider in this state and we need them operating to the full extent of their training and education,” Klick said. “HB 1415 is about patient access, it's about expanding options for care in rural and underserved areas, it's about patient choice and high-quality, cost-effective care.”
