AACN Advocating for State Scope of Practice
AACN is committed to supporting our state delegations with legislation that will impact the ability of Advanced Practice Registered Nurses (APRNs) to provide care to the full extent of their education and training. Please contact AACN’s Director of Government Affairs, Dr. Suzanne Miyamoto, at email@example.com if we can be of assistance.

AACN independently and with our coalition partners respond to proposed rules that impact APRNs at the federal level. These may address barriers to practice and parity with other providers.
Over the last three years, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has provided recommendations concerning state scope of practice legislation. Each time the FTC has offered comments, they support APRNs to practice to the full extent of their education and training. They recognize that the care provided by APRNs is safe, cost-effective and is essential for access to care.
Review the most current literature that supports APRN practice. Nationally recognized associations, respected news leaders, noted researchers, and evidenced based policy organizations weigh in.
