Legislative Visits / Thank Yous
It is legislative time. At this time, TNP needs for you to make an effort to visit your representatives in Dallas, Denton, & Rockwall counties to educate them regarding APRNs. TNP continues to work on the 2013 Prescriptive Authority Initiative which will provide collaborative practice in Texas. This can move us towards policies similar to several other states that are in the middle of the nation, as far as prescriptive authority issues are concerned, rather than towards the bottom.
As well, if you are a constituent in Senator Carona, please write him a Thank You for all the wonderful work he does for APRNs in the state of Texas.Robert Metzger, DNP, APRN, FNP-BCTexas Nurse Practitioners Dallas/Denton Representative
