Please visit the website for our latest Legislative Update. It can be found under the Legislative Updates 2018 tab on the left. 

Call to Action:

Today, 2/19/18 at 2:00PM in Senate Conference Room 1, the Senate Professional Registration & Licensing Committee will hear SB 745 relating to the geographic proximity barrier and ratio of APRN’s that physicians may collaborate with.

Constituent input is both necessary and helpful and we strongly encourage any APRN that is available to attend the hearing to offer your testimony on how the unnecessary barriers to Missouri’s NP’s are harming your patients and your profession. If you are available to testify, please contact us and we will be happy to visit with you to help you craft your testimony.

If you are unable to visit the Capitol in person, please consider submitting written testimony of your experiences and be sure to complete the attached witness form. Brevity is important, and your testimony should focus on the impact to access and care, the availability of NP’s to fulfill a crucial role in the healthcare delivery system, and the burden that the unnecessary regulations place on our highly trained and educated NP’s.

If you are a constituent of one of the following senators, your input is even more critical. Calls, emails, and personal visits with these officials may be just what they need to hear to convince them that eliminating these barriers is the right thing to do. Committee members are as follows:

Sen. Jeanie Riddle (Chair) 

Sen. Caleb Rowden (Vice Chair) 

Sen. Mike Cunningham 

Sen. Bill Eigel 

Sen. Jill Schupp 

Sen. Scott Sifton 

Sen. Paul Weiland 

Thanks in advance for your help! We appreciate all that you can do to help.
