On the week of 9/11, Congress is unbelievably considering specific anti-APRN legislation. The NLN needs you to contact members of Congress today to stop it in its tracks!


As part of critical legislation extending expiring Veterans benefits, HR 5985, introduced late Friday by House Veterans Affairs Committee Chairman Jeff Miller (FL), includes a provision putting off for one year any rule offering Full Practice Authority for CRNAs - by name! APRN care in the VA is under attack from Sec. 415 of HR 5985! With the end of this session of Congress very near, HR 5985 has been scheduled for a House vote Tuesday, September 13, under an expedited procedure that requires a 2/3 majority to pass and prohibits all amendments.

We need nurses APRNs students and educators to take action now.
