On December 13, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) announced their decision to allow most advanced practice registered nurses (APRN) within the VA to practice independently of a physician’s clinical oversight, regardless of individual state law. In July 2016, SIS joined with the American Medical Association (AMA) and 96 medical associations in urging the VA to continue supporting team-based care that makes the most of the respective education and training of physicians and APRNs as part of a collaborative framework.
