OUR CHANCE TO TELL GOVERNOR OF OUR OVER REGULATION!!!!
The Governor’s office is looking at over regulation and who has more over regulation than rules of APRNs. We have an opportunity to voice our concerns about all the barriers our patients face. We need to get rid of the rules of two-week chart review, a follow-up with a collaborator after we have seen a patient and started treatment, geographic restrictions of being within 30-50 miles of a collaborator, having a three to one ration of physician to NPs, must have CPA to prescribe and make it known that these barriers hurt Missourians healthcare. This should be done on three sites. 1. Board of Nursing: 2017 Rule Review Pursuant to Executive Order 17-03 and & 536.175, RSMo, the Board will be conducting a review of all of its Rules between now and 2018. The Board will be taking public comments on any of its Rules during its August 16 and September 27 at 8 a.m. meetings. Two methods are available for submitting public comments to the board. 1. Public comments can be submitted on-line. https://renew.pr.mo.gov/nursing-proposed.asp 2. Public comments can be submitted in person at the Board’s August and/or October board meeting(s). It is requested that if you plan on using this option that you submit your comments in advance so that copies can be made prior to the meeting(s) you plan on attending. You will also need to check the appropriate meeting(s) open agenda(s) for the scheduled time for public comments of a specific meeting date, http://pr.mo.gov/accountancy-meetings.asp ADVOCACY UDPATE September is National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month AMNP Newsletter September 2017 Page | 3 2.
