ISIS Joins Medical Specialties in a Call for VHA to Pull Back APRN Independent Practice Requirements

Friday, November 22, 2013  
ISIS joined numerous specialty and state medical associations in a joint letter to the Department of Veteran Affairs protesting the draft Veteran Health Affairs (VHA) Nursing Handbook, which would mandate that all advanced practice nurses (APRNs) within the VHA be designated as independent providers, without regard to state law. The draft handbook would effectively eliminate physician-led, team-based care and require APRNs to attain independent practice by penalizing those who do not wish to attain this status by prohibiting them from practicing within the VHA.  To view the letter sent to the VHA, click here
