From the Florida Nurse Practitioner Network:

Earlier this afternoon the Florida senate passed two landmark ARNP bills. Both SB 614 (controlled substance bill) and SB 476 (Baker Act) bill passed through this final committee. Both bills will be reconciled with similar bills in the house then returned to the Senate for the final vote.

This is unprecedented in the history of the ARNP role in Florida!! Please join me in thanking our legislative team, our lobbyist Allison Carvajal, lobbyist Martha DeCastro and Senator Grimsley for their hard work and support on our behalf. All three of these dedicated supporters worked tirelesly to craft the bills and amendments to be most favorable to us. I know for a fact that they met in person over this past weekend to make sure the bills passed!

Please stay tuned for further information as it comes out as well as for any Alerts and calls to action!
