Miami Nurse Practitioners Promoting Full Practice Authority

Miami Nurse Practitioners, promoting full practice authority!
Let your state senator know you support letting nurse practitioners practice to the fullest extent of their education!
Refers to state practice laws that regulate nurse practitioners to evaluate patients, diagnose, order and interpret diagnostic tests, initiate and manage treatments-including prescribe medications-under the exclusive licensure authority of the state board of nursing.

Adopted by 1/3 States
Benefits include:

  • Improves access to care
  • Streamlines and improves efficiency of care delivery
  • Decreases cost

Nurse Practitioners need to practice in the scope of their full practice authority to address the shortage of providers, wait times to see a provider, and increased number of patients through the Affordable Care Act.  They want to remove delays in care that are created when the care they provide requires a doctors signature. To avoid duplication of services and to lower overall cost of care, support this initiative in Miami.
