Removing Barriers

Thank you to New York Senator Montgomery of Kings County for introducing legislation that will allow nurse practitioners to sign death certificates (S.2969). The bill passed the NY State Senate with strong bi-partisan support, 58-3. It must next pass the Assembly and then on to the Governor's desk for approval to become law.

Here is some additional information on the bill and its rationale.

This is the kind of Senator that every state needs. Educated, well spoken and not afraid of those organizations that do not support nurses for their own purposes.
