Veterans Health Administration-Your Voice Is Needed!
Your voice is needed to ensure that your Congressional Members understand the benefits that veterans receiving care in the Veterans Health Administration (VHA) would receive if nurse practitioners practiced to their full scope in all facilities throughout the VA ystem. You can go to the AANP Advocacy Center at http://www.capwiz.com/aanp/home/ to write your Members of Congress to ask them to support this important policy.
There is also an article in US Medicine describing the policy change which asks readers to vote in a poll on whether they agree with APRNs practicing to their full scope throughout the VHA system. We encourage everyone to go to the article and vote in the poll today. http://www.usmedicine.com/agencies/department-of-veterans-affairs/possible-va-change-in-advanced-nursing-roles-sparks-heated-debate/
