Description

This brochure explains the importance of advanced practiced registered nurses (APRNs) in health care, and how access to care could be increased if APRNs are allowed to practice to the full extent of their education and training in all states. This brochure also explains the APRN Consensus Model, which if adopted, would reduce barriers to care in all jurisdictions.
