Nurse prac­ti­tion­ers have solid record of pro­vid­ing com­pe­tent, high-qual­ity care

Modern Healthcare - - COMMENT -

Re­gard­ing the ar­ti­cle “VA fi­nal­izes rule that ex­pands scope of nurse prac­tice” (Mod­ern­Health­care.com, Dec. 13) and the com­ments from the Amer­i­can Med­i­cal As­so­ci­a­tion, shame on the AMA for such a short­sighted opin­ion. Ad­vanced-prac­tice reg­is­tered nurses have proven time and time again that we can pro­vide com­pe­tent, qual­ity and pro­fes­sional care to all pa­tients and we are hon­ored to be tak­ing care of our vet­er­ans.

Why not work with us and see what we do prior to dis­cour­ag­ing and dis­cred­it­ing our ef­forts to open ac­cess of care to those who need it. Louann Bailey, APRN
