My latest blog post for JAMA News Forum focuses on access to care and scope of practice: http://wp.me/p13lz7-33R
I wrote it right before NYS passed a budget that removed the written practice agreement requirement for experienced NPs in the state but was able to add mention of this in the blog. The new law still doesn’t remove all scope barriers and a sunseting clause will require continued vigilance. It’s a step forward but more needs to be done.
I welcome your thoughts.
