Urgent Re: Proposed amendment to SB 197

Posted almost 4 years ago by Laura Mehringer

The leaders of the GAPP committee need the name and district number of your state senator ASAP because we have a proposed amendment to be introduced in the Senate that we are not in favor of. The amendment would require three years of  experience as an RN or APRN to qualify for the 1000 hours mentorship post graduation before getting prescriptive authority. Without the 3 years experience the required hours would be 1800. This amendment would create unneeded obstacles that research consistently shows are not necessary for safe practice, and would make the law messy which we are trying to avoid. Please  forward the name and district number of your state senator to Sara Jarrett  at  sjarrett@mindspring.com  or David Rodriguez  at  mdavidfnp@yahoo.com  and if possible Cc to me at lrmehringer@comcast.net

Thank you,

Laura Mehringer 

Legislative Director
