Good Afternoon,

By executive order, the Governor has granted full practice authority to APRNs in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Attached is the full order, see #5 in the resolves. It also relaxes regulations related to licensure and working with a license from another state. Please share it widely!! 

For those affected, please keep records of how you were able to respond to this crisis more effectively and provide appropriate care without negative patient outcomes to help support the permanent removal of these barriers to practice in the future.
