Seeking Brief Descriptions of Positive Implications/Outcomes in FPA States

Dear Friends & Colleagues,

The communications group responsible for the upcoming National Acad of Med Future of Nursing report is seeking

  • Specific illustrations/stories if they exist of how lifting scope of practice barriers directly affected care and issues related to health equity, including access to care, reducing rates or chronic disease, etc. 
  • The goal is to try to collect examples that build the case for why lifting nurse scope of practice barriers directly impacts health equity and enables nurses to have impact on improving health and well-being. 

If you have an example, please send it to me. Thank you!
