SIS Joins the Call to Stop U.S. Interstate Compacts from Expanding the Scope of Practice for APRNs

Tuesday, May 15, 2018  

On May 10, 2018, SIS and dozens of U.S. medical societies called on the National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN) to reconsider certain provisions of the Advanced Practice Registered Nurse Compact (APRN Compact). The Compact would supersede state laws that require APRNs to practice under physician supervision, collaboration, or oversight and potentially grants prescriptive authority to APRNs in states where they do not currently enjoy that privilege.
