The Federal Trade Commission Issues Recommendations on State Scope of Practice Legislation

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.
