Tennessee Nurse Practitioner Association

A Call for Full Practice Authority

Posted over 4 years ago by Irene Bean

Full Practice Authority

There are states across the country who are being granted Full Practice Authority. The legislators in Tennessee have returned to their perspective offices throughout the state. Therefore, it is time for us to make our move.

Please call or visit your local representative. Establish a relationship with your representative. Educate them about the roles and education of a nurse practitioner.

We need your help. If you do not want to meet them alone, please invite another APRN to attend the meeting with you.

Lets get out and make a difference. I will begin calling for meetings with representatives in Nashville on tomorrow. Keep us informed on your visits. We do not want to wait until 2016 to begin this campaign. It is imperative for us to begin NOW!!!
