With a focus on health promotion, disease prevention and health education and counseling, NPs guide patients in making smarter health and lifestyle choices. To continue to provide that high level of patient-focused care, and to continue to serve as a trusted resource for patients, it’s important that NPs delve deeper into how legislative changes could affect their practice.
Championing modernized laws and improved health policies for Nurse Practitioners in every state.
Federal legislation has a direct impact on the NP role—and the patients they serve. That’s why AANP's legislative team represents NPs and their patients on critical issues related to licensure, access to care, patient safety, health care reform, reimbursement and other concerns.
