Lots going on for nurse practitioners in New York these days! We are very excited to have the Nurse Practitiioners Modernization Act pass as part of the 2014-15 NY State Budget! This is a major step forward that eliminates the written collaborative agreement between a an experienced nurse practitioner and physician. We have been at work on this for a long time and it is an acknowledgement by stakeholders that nurse practitioners are key to increasing health care access across NY state.
Also, check out my interview at NursingSchool411.com. They had asked me some thoughtful questions and I am glad to have the opportunity to answer them!
