ACT NOW to stop bill on APRN Independent Practice

We need to enlist your help NOW to stop a very dangerous scope expansion bill – House Bill 4404. The House Public Health Committee will hear the bill on Monday. If you live or practice in House District 100, Representative Venton Jones, please take a few minutes before Monday to let him know you oppose this bill. HB 4404 would cede the Texas Legislature’s authority to determine how APRNs treat and prescribe for Texas patients. The compact would authorize an APRN to obtain a multistate license to “assume responsibility and accountability for patient care independent of any supervisory or collaborative relationship.” Click here to look up your legislative district.
