Nurse Practitioner Council of Collier County

Call to Action! HB27A

Posted almost 4 years ago by Doreen Cassarino


From the Florida Nurse Practitioner Network

HB 27A, our Controlled Substance bill, will be heard in the Senate this week. We expect to have some challenges getting the bill through the Senate.

We need every NP in Florida to email their Senator and ask them to vote in favor of the bill. At this point, we may not have enough votes for it to pass and need your support. Go to and search for "prescribing" to find the bill. You can also find your senator and his email address here by going to :

(The majority of NPCC members have Senator Garret Richter as their senator. His website with a link to email him isĀ )

Also, email the following Senators on the Health Policy Committee:
Sen. Aaron Bean
Sen. Eleanor Sobel
Sen. Oscar Braynon
Sen. Anitere Flores
Sen. Don Gaetz
Sen. Bill Galvano
Sen. Rene Garcia
Sen. Arthenia Joyner

PLEASE EMAIL YOUR SENATOR IMMEDIATELY TO VOTE IN FAVOR OF HB 27A : Drug Prescription by Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioners and Physician Assistants.

Thank you for taking up this CALL TO ACTION

Janet DuBois,
President, FNPN
