The Work Has Just Begun!
From the Florida Nurse Practitioner Network:
House Bill 7071 and Senate Bill 1352 were both published and if either are passed they would be a major step forward in modernizing nurse practitioner practice. You can go to http://myfloridahouse.gov/Sections/Bills/billsdetail.aspx?BillId=52482&SessionId=75 and http://www.flsenate.gov/Session/Bill/2014/1352 to read each. Bill summaries will be forthcoming in the next few days.
We are on the verge of great things. Now more than ever your involvement in your professional organization is imperative. The first step is membership. If you are not a member of the Florida Nurse Practitioner Network you can easily join at www.fnpn.org. Years and years of hard work and persistence are bearing fruit but now more than ever each nurse practitioner in the great state of Florida must be active. If you would like to serve on a committee please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or go to www.fnpn.org and contribute to the PAC.
